When will it be paid?

"This support will be paid once by Social Security from December 23, 2022, and is intended for beneficiaries of the social electricity tariff and beneficiaries of minimum social benefits", explains the Social Security Institute (ISS), in a note published on its website.

The ISS explains that "minimum social benefits are considered, for this purpose, the solidarity supplement for the elderly; the social insertion income; social disability pension from the special disability protection regime; supplementary social benefit for inclusion; the social pension old-age benefits, unemployment benefit and family allowance (1st and 2nd scale)".

How will it be paid?

The attribution of support, explains the ISS, is automatic.

"Payment is preferably made by bank transfer (via IBAN registered with Social Security Direct) or postal order (for those who do not have an IBAN registered with Social Security Direct)", explains the organisation.

If you don't have your IBAN registered, you can do so through the Direct Social Security, in the 'Profile' menu, option 'Bank account'.
