These are data from the National Social Security Institute, which the Ministry of Inclusion, Social Security and Migration will publish regularly from this October and which break down the total number of households, by type, number of benefit holders and beneficiaries by sex, Autonomous Community and province.

Profile of recipients
These cumulative figures show that two out of every three benefit recipients are women (338,982, compared to 170,592 men), and in total the benefit has reached more women (767,709) than men (638,881). Some 42.4% of beneficiaries are minors (597,179).

By type of household, the majority are those in which at least one child is among the beneficiaries (64.2% of the total, 327,398 households) and 272,913 benefits are already receiving the Child Support Supplement, an allowance of 100 euros per household per month in the case of children aged 0 to 3; 70 euros per month for each child aged 3 to 6 and 50 euros per month for each child aged 6 to 18, which came into force on 1 January.

The IMV is a living benefit. On 27 September, the Council of Ministers approved the ‘Royal Decree regulating the compatibility of the Minimum Living Income with income from work or self-employment in order to improve the real opportunities for social and labour inclusion of the beneficiaries of the benefit’, which will encourage recipients to get a job or – if they already have one – to increase the number of hours worked, guaranteeing that their disposable income will always be higher than it would have been if they had not taken this step.
