Adeje opens an office to help those without a digital cert claim the IMV, the basic minimum wage

The office is in the ‘Escuela de Convivencia’ in Las Nieves, and you will need an appointment

21 august 2020
The Adeje council will, from Monday August 24th, offer a service to help those on the Adeje padrón (borough resident register) to apply for the ‘Ingreso Mínimo Vital’ or the 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, appointments can be made online or by phone 922 756200.  On the day of the appointment you will need to bring originals and photocopies of your documentation.
The departments of Community Welfare and of Citizen Participation have been working together to create this administrative service, although the actual aid is awarded by a national body.  “It is very important that we help our people contact other administrations, not everyone had a digital certificate, or knows how to apply for aid.  The councils are the administrative bodies closest to the people and at times like this we have to be aware of who is having difficulty in accessing available aid”, said the councillor for Community Welfare Mercedes Vargas Delgado.
María Calvijo Maza, councillor for Citizen Participation, explained that they had decided to use the Escuela de Convivencia because other council centres “are already at capacity under current Covid protocols.  We looked for a centre where we could offer the service with an assurance of security and where we could attend to people in as short a time as possible once they have requested an appointment”.
To apply for assistance through the service, you must be on the Adeje padrón.  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 Adeje service remember to bring the documentation of all those living in your household (passports in the case of foreign residents along with residency papers) and you will need to present a certificate of your status 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.
