Adeje Ayuntamiento has announced a new service from this coming Monday 24 August to help those registered on the council padrón and who need to apply for the ‘Ingreso Mínimo Vital’ (basic minimum wage), in particular those who do not have a digital certificate or online key. The service will be on offer in the Escuela de Convivencia in Las Nieves by appointment – this can be made online HERE or by phone to 922 756 200.
To apply for the basic minimum wage you will have to meet all the requirements as laid down by central government. These include the requirement that you are between 23 and 65 years of age, are currently economically vulnerable (your household costs are not covered by the money you are earning), have been be permanently resident in Spain for at least a year and are legally resident in the country (if you are a foreign resident).
The basic minimum wage will range from €462 – €1015 per month depending on the number of people living in the household. When you use the service in Adeje remember to take to the appointment originals and photocopies of documentation of all those living in your household (passports in the case of foreign residents along with residency papers) and you a certificate showing your registration on the Adeje padrón (and one showing how many are in the house especially if you are separated), the ‘Libro de Familia’ and any marriage documentation regarding those living in the same household. You will also be asked to sign a declaration giving Adeje the right to access your tax information, etc, and bring a copy of your bank account number.
It is possible that other councils will be offering similar services so it’s worth checking out, but what Adeje is offering is an administrative assistance to local residents to help submit an application: the Council is not involved in the processing or approval of the application. Other Councils offering a similar service will likely say the same.
