According to the deputy, the Ministry of Labor regularly monitors feedback from citizens who apply for social support, so the changes will also affect the property that belongs to people applying for social assistance.
According to the requirements, a family who has one apartment, house, cottage, garage, and a car at the same time will be able to apply for the allowance. State aid will be refused if the family has two or more cars (except in cases when it comes to families with many children, families with disabled people, and also if the car was received thanks to social support measures). Payments are assigned in the amount of 50, 75 and 100% of the regional subsistence minimum.
