Energy crisis: Economically disadvantaged families will receive 60 euros

Written By Lara Silva

On Wednesday the Council of Ministers approved new support that will be given to economically disadvantaged families. The most vulnerable families will be given 60 euros in April to help mitigate the increase in fuel and food prices, aggravated by the war in Ukraine. The 60 euros only applies once in April by the Ministry of Labor, Solidarity, and Social Security.

The financial support applies to those eligible for the social tariff for electricity. In March, Pedro Siza Vieira estimated this support would include over 1.5 million people, but the numbers are now at around 750,000 people, according to CNN Portugal. The Ministry of Labor has not confirmed the number of people eligible.

This support is said to also apply to individuals receiving the following financial aid:

  • Support for elderly
  • Social insertion income (RSI)
  • Unemployment
  • Family abandonment
  • Disability pension

The support can also apply to those without financial aid, but with a household annual income is equal to or less than 5,808 euros.
