It can also be presented at the Tax Assistance Centers (CAF), starting from 1 January 2024.

THE REQUIREMENTS TO ACCESS THE INCLUSION ALLOWANCE

This is a measure of economic support and social and professional inclusion, conditional on possession of some requirements.

The ADI is recognized to families with an ISEE not exceeding 9,360 euros, which have at least one member in one of the following conditions:

  • with disabilities;
  • underage;
  • at least 60 years of age;
  • in a disadvantaged condition and included in a care and assistance program of local health and social services certified by the Public Administration.

With the Ministerial Decree of 13 December 2023, the categories of subjects to be considered at a disadvantage were identified.

  • a component to supplement the family income, share Aup to the threshold of 6,000 euros per year, or 7,560 euros per year, if the household is made up of people all aged 67 or over, or of people aged 67 or over and other family members all in of serious disability or non-self-sufficiency. This quota is multiplied by the equivalence scale referred to in article 2, paragraph 4, decree-law 48/2023, verified on the basis of the information detectable by the valid ISEE, from the archives of the Institute and from the declarations made in the application. At the time of first application, for applications submitted up to February 2024, in the absence of a valid ISEE, verification of the requirements for the purposes of disbursement in the months of January and February 2024, where the conditions are met, is carried out on the basis of the ISEE in force on 31 December 2023.

After submitting the application, the members of the family unit are summoned by the Social Services of their municipality for a multidimensional analysis of needs.

Following the evaluation of each individual case, the members of the family unit can be sent to work or training courses, or followed by the Social Services if they are considered not to be activated.

Individuals who are part of a family unit benefiting from ADI, of aged between 18 and 59with parental responsibilities, which can be activated at work, will be directed to Employment Centers or entities accredited to employment services, for the signing of the Personalized Service Agreement (PSP).

The active political path can also include participation in projects useful to the community (PUC).
