From January 2024 the Inclusion Allowance will be active, the sum of which will be assigned based on the calculation: who will receive the minimum amount.

There has been a lot of talk about this service, which allows economic support that can exceed 500 euros per month. However, it should be noted that it will be paid in maximum form only to those who do not receive any form of income. In this regard, it is good to make an approximate calculation to have an estimate of the sum that you will receive.

Millions of Italians have already applied for the Inclusion Allowance; among these disabled people, over 60s and families with minors. The beneficiaries who will receive the allowance, in most cases, already benefit from disability pensions, maintenance allowances or other supports. These will affect the final sum of the Inclusion Allowance and, in some cases, the amount can drop up to 40 euros per month.

## Inclusion allowance: who will receive the minimum sum

To better understand how the support works, it is right to point out that the Inclusion Allowance is nothing more than an amount that supplements the family’s income. Among the requirements to obtain it, there is also an income limit which must be less than 6,000 euros per year (7,560 if the household is made up of only over 67s or people aged 67 or over and the other members have serious disabilities.

This maximum income threshold must be multiplied by the corresponding parameter of the equivalence scale identified in Article 2, paragraph 4, of Legislative Decree no. 48/2023. It is basically equal to 1 for the family unit, but can increase up to a maximum of 2.2 in the presence of members in particular conditions; alternatively, up to a maximum of 2.3 in the presence of people with serious disabilities or non-self-sufficiency.

Once you have the maximum income based on these parameters, you can calculate the actual amount by subtracting the income received and the rent (if any). Taking a practical example, a single person aged 61 will have a maximum income limit of 6,000 euros. If the beneficiary does not receive any income and does not pay rent, he will therefore have a family income of 0, so the formula will be: 6,000-0 = 6,000.

This sum will be divided by 12 monthly payments, i.e. 6,000 /12= 500. However, if the same recipient receives an income of 5,520 euros per year, the calculation will be as follows: (6,000-5,520)/12= 40€ per month. Although this is one of the cases in question, there are many variables so it can even exceed 500 euros per month.

A second common (and decidedly opposite) example could be that in which the family unit lives in a rented house with an annual rent of 3,360 euros. If the family receives a family income of 6,000 euros, with the equivalence scale and the calculation indicated above, it can even reach 730 euros per month.
