Citizenship income, 250,000 families will be without it by 2023. What will happen next?

What future awaits those who will not see their support renewed? The streets are different. There are those who will receive the inclusion check from 2024: it will be families with at least one person over 60, a disabled person to take care of or dependent minor children. Then there are those who will have Training and Employment Support. And again: someone will be taken over by social services and could return to benefit from the income for the last months of the year. More than 100,000 families will be left without subsidies

Out of a total of 896,000 families who have benefited from the Citizenship Income to date – 1 August – between 160 and 170,000 will no longer receive it. Or at least: these are the nuclei that have already been warned of the suspension of economic aid. By the end of 2023, according to government estimates, the number will rise to 250,000. By 2024 it will then reach 436 thousand. But what happens to those who lose their Citizenship Income?

What happens now? The three hypotheses

Not all Italians who find themselves without the subsidy have the same future ahead of them. First of all, there are about 690,000 families who will keep it until the end of the year and then receive the Inclusion Check. Then there are the approximately 436,000 families who will receive Training and Employment Support, because they are considered “employable”. But be careful: here the scenario gets complicated, because they could also be taken over by the Municipalities and social services. In this case, at least until the end of the year, they would return to receive the Citizenship Income. Then there’s yet another band, which we hear less about. More than 100 thousand families – but there could be many more – will not have any subsidies, as they do not meet the economic criteria set for obtaining them.

The beneficiaries of the different measures

To maintain the Income in the coming months, and then move on to the Inclusion Allowance, will be the households with at least one over-60 person, a disabled person to take care of or minor dependent children. All the others will instead have the Training and Work Support, intended for those with an Isee income of less than 6 thousand euros; those between the ages of 18 and 59; who does not have disabled, minors or over-60s in the family. However, they will have to participate in mandatory training activities: it is in fact a reimbursement of expenses and not a subsidy such as the Income. The maximum amount is 350 euros per month for 12 months, no longer renewable.
