Luxembourg - Social protection scheme will change - January 31, 2017

The country’s minimum guaranteed income (known as the RMG - introduced in 1986) will soon be replaced by an 'Income of Social Inclusion' or REVIS. In general, the government wants to limit subsidy dependency, in other words, fewer people living on benefits. REVIS will be calculated in a different way, being divided into two parts. In practice, there will be two benefits: the ‘inclusion’ allowance and the ‘activation’ subsidy: the inclusion allowance will initially be composed of a basic amount of 701.19 euro per person, plus the same amount per household to help pay the expenses and 217.71 euro per dependent child. For single parents, the amount rises to 282.07 euro for each dependent child.
