In Catalonia, three years before the creation of the Minimum Vital Income Throughout Spain, the Guaranteed Citizenship Income (RGC) has been activated. Specifically, it is an installment in the last way where, until 2021, the Generalitat offers data revealing whether the recipients are Spanish or foreign. Therefore, the percentage of foreign people who benefited from HELP It’s about 40% according to Vox and The Objective. They are two points lower than the percentage of foreigners registered in Catalonia who enjoy aid rent on living place.
In 2021, in Catalonia, foreigners will be 16% of the population. Currently, the Generalitat does not group RGC recipients and aid for rent depending on whether they are Spanish citizens or not. Because? Well, because, in the opinion of the Generalitat, “the type of document of identification of the person has nothing to do with receiving the benefit.”
Vox considers this important
Knowing what percentage of the recipients of these aids have DNI and what percentage have NIE (and, therefore, foreigners) is relevant to Vox. For this reason, training requires this information for months.
At the moment, Vox says that they only have figures for two years: 2020 and 2021. In 2020, the foreigners who received help from the Generalitat were, according to the aforementioned training and The Objective, 28.61%, and in 2021, 40. 06%. They also provide a table with the figures provided by the Generalitat. The increase, in one year, is eleven points. What are the percentages now? The Generalitat did not say this, but María García Fuster (Vox deputy of the Parliament) considers that the number of foreign recipients continues to grow.
“They decided to protect the information so that the citizens do not know the truth about what they spend their money on. Unfortunately, a very important part of public resources is allocated to immigration, with clear positive discrimination in favor of it. This means that the working Catalan who in a given moment may need a HELP punctual secondary school seems to be completely abandoned.” This is what García Fuster thinks.
From Verificat, an association that describes itself as “non-profit” and that, on its website, gives itself the mission of “fighting misinformation and manipulation on the Internet,” they say no, which neither Vox nor The Objective tells the truth. What truth does Verificat defend?
Well, the RGC is not given “based on nationality, but based on income” and that, if there are many foreign recipients, it is because 52% of foreigners living in Catalonia “are at risk of poverty.”
And, yes, that’s true, but neither Vox nor The Objective deny that this is the case. They only criticized the Generalitat for hiding the nationality of RGC recipients. And that, no matter how Verificat puts it, is true, because there is no public data since 2021. Finally, even the verifier must be verified because, the verifier who verifies as verified by Verificat, is a bad one. witness
The RGC is granted to all family units, regardless of their size, where the income is less than 100% of the income sufficiency indicator of Catalonia (IRSC). It is set at 614.65 euros in 14 payments. Therefore, the income threshold is 717.10 euros per month in twelve payments.
In this way, a person who has no income of any kind can receive that amount every month. If the family unit has two members, 1,075.64 will be received. If you have three, 1,183.21, and, if you have four, 1,290.77. If it has five or more members, 1,305.11 will be received.
If there is some income – lower than the IRSC because if there is a higher monthly income there is no HELP- subtracted from the allocated amount.
Therefore, a family of three members one of them has a part-time job where he receives 183 euros, will receive 1,000.21 euros per month. To receive the RGC you only need to be over 23 years old and have lived in Catalonia for two years. Depending on how (and that’s the drama) sometimes it’s more beneficial not to work than to do it.
