"Joint Commission approves project on Minimum Guaranteed Income To become law, both chambers must ratify the commission's proposal."
For Chilean Socialist Senator Juan Pablo Letelier, "this is a very bad project, full of small print. It doesn't solve the political problem we have in our shaken society."
"The next step will be for the Joint Commission's report to be evaluated in the Deputies' Chamber. If it is approved, it will be promoted to the Senate. And if it is ratified there, the bill will be promulgated." Sichel clarified.
After its enactment, in the first year of the Law, people will have to apply for this subsidy in person, through the local offices of the Ministry of Social Development.
Those who have a full-time employment contract of more than 30 hours and do not belong to the top 10% of income will benefit from the subsidy. These requirements must be accredited at the time of application.
