This supplement, which has been implemented within the framework of the Minimum Vital Income (IMV), will reach the beneficiaries of the dependent child allowance, also colloquially called "the points", and the beneficiaries of the IMV. But it will also reach other low-income families, since the thresholds of guaranteed income and assets established for each type of household will be raised.

To whom is it addressed?

This assistance is intended for recipients of the minimum living income with children, recipients of the dependent child allowance and low-income households with children.
 
 

Do I have to order it and how?

If the family already has the Minimum Vital Minimum (IMV), it is recognized ex officio, without the need to make any application. It is automatic.

If you are not an MVI or points beneficiary family, you can apply as if you were applying for MVI, through the same form. https://bit.ly/3ESo1QY
