Payment boost for the unemployed

Increase in payments

LONG-TERM jobless Spaniards no longer entitled to unemployment benefits are set to have their social security payments increased.

Those unemployed who have at least two dependents, not including their spouse, will now receive €450 instead of €399.

The government reforms also include plans to get the long-term unemployed back into work through retraining schemes run in collaboration with the regional authorities.

Labour Minister Fatima Banez said: “The government wants to ensure that nobody really in need should find themselves destitute.”
