These are the unemployed who will receive 100 euros more unemployment per month in 2023


Up to 300,000 unemployed people will receive 100 euros more per month of unemployment benefit from January 2023. The reason is very simple. This was announced by the Government of Spain at the beginning of last October, during the presentation of the new General State Budgets (PGE), by the Minister of Finance and Public Administration, María Jesús Montero. The explanation is very simple. The Executive of Pedro Sánchez raises the regulatory base to 60% from the seventh month as a beneficiary of this contributory benefit managed by the State Public Employment Service (SEPE).

Precisely in this sense, it should be remembered that the regulatory base used to calculate unemployment was lowered during the mandate of the Popular Party, at that time led by Mariano Rajoy, 50% after 180 days. Therefore, workers with lower wages and who have accumulated lower Social Security contributions will be the most benefited by this measure as of January 1 of next year. During the first six months, the regulatory base is fixed as before, that is, at 70%, while from day 181, 60% of said base will be charged.

To understand it better, here is an example. If a worker has a regulatory base of 1,000 euros per month and is fired by his company, during the first six months of unemployment, he will receive 70%, that is, 700 euros per month. However, from day 181 unemployed, from 2023 the monthly payment will become 600 euros, instead of 500 euros, as has been the case until now. Another important point to bear in mind is that in order to calculate the regulatory base overtime is not taken into accountnor any other extra income on the payroll.

Unemployment benefit increases from January 1

Another of the new measures adopted by the Government, at the request of the Ministry of Labor and Social Economy, led by Yolanda Díaz, has to do with the revaluation of the unemployment benefit, around 8.5% as of January 2023. However, the Minister of Social Security, José Luis Escrivá, does not rule out the increase could be even greater in the case of the beneficiaries of the Minimum Vital Income (IMV) and the lowest pensions. On the other hand, the Executive also intends to sraise the unemployment subsidy and the Active Insertion Income (RAI) in the same terms, since in both cases, they are also set according to the IPREM which, let us remember, will rise by 3.6% from next year, and will reach 600 euros per month.
