Agreement for caregivers
Since April 1, non-professional caregivers of beneficiaries of the Dependency Law can sign a special agreement with the Social Security without having to pay the contributions themselves, as had been the case since 2013. From now on, the social security contributions of these agreements, including those already in force, are paid by the General State Administration and do not generate any cost to the non-professional caregiver.
This is in compliance with Royal Decree-Law 6/2019, of March 1, on urgent measures to guarantee equal treatment and opportunities between women and men in employment and occupation. Once validated in the Congress of Deputies, this Royal Decree recovers in its entirety the special agreement already provided for in Royal Decree 615/2007 regulating Social Security for caregivers of dependent persons.
Royal Decree 20/2012 modified the nature of this agreement, so that since January 1, 2013 it has been the caregiver who has had to be exclusively responsible for his or her contributions if he or she wanted to continue to maintain his or her relationship with the Social Security.

Unemployment benefit II (ALG II) is paid to people who need help. Another prerequisite is that they are fit for work. The unemployment benefit II currently amounts to EUR 432.00 per month for an adult person. In addition, housing benefit can be claimed. When ALG II is paid, the person’s savings are included in the calculation and the entitlement is adjusted to the ALG II amount.
