The Minimum Vital Income.

This benefit, which is paid by Social Security, is having a particular impact on reducing child poverty, given that of the total number of beneficiaries, 42.8% are minors (676,288). Moreover, if we take into account the number of households, 65.6% have at least one child (368,069).

According to these data, in two out of three households, the benefit holder is a woman and, if we take into account the total number of beneficiaries, 54.3% are women (858,445).

The CAPI, which came into force in January 2022, is an allowance of 100 euros per household per month for children aged 0 to 3 years; 70 euros per month for each child between 3 and 6 years and 50 euros per month for each child between 6 and 18 years.

IMV information bus
The IMV information bus, an initiative launched by the Ministry of Inclusion, Social Security and Migration last October, aims to inform all vulnerable people who are potential beneficiaries of the benefit but are not receiving it about it, and to help them to apply for it or to find out the status of their application.

This is an innovative initiative to extend the reach of the IMV and ensure that all situations of poverty and exclusion are addressed.

The information bus, which plans to visit 40 localities in our country, has already stopped in 20 municipalities and districts of seven autonomous communities where it has attended to 2,510 people.

COMMUNITY OF MADRID: Alcalá de Henares, Fuenlabrada, Parla, Carabanchel (Madrid) and Getafe.
CASTILLA-LA MANCHA: Toledo, Ciudad Real, Albacete
ANDALUSIA: Linares, Seville, Cordoba, Huelva and Cadiz
EXTREMADURA: Badajoz and Mérida

In January, since the second stage began, the information bus has visited the towns of Berriozar (Navarra), Albacete, Murcia, Lorca (Murcia), Torrevieja (Alicante) and Alicante for eleven days, attending 741 people.

Profile of the people assisted
In terms of the profile of the total number of people assisted (2,510) by this resource, 68% are women and 55% had already applied for the benefit.

Among those who had already applied for the IMV, 49% were being processed and, among those who had not applied, 35% were due to lack of knowledge and 32% explained that it was because they thought they did not meet the requirements.

Regarding the motivation of the people who have approached the bus this month, 70% have done so to request information, 26% to resolve doubts and 3% to be accompanied in the process.
