Widowhood with dependent family members
Dependent relatives are understood to be children under the age of 26 who live with the beneficiary or older family members with a disability, or foster children under the age of 18, when the joint income of the cohabiting family, divided by the number of family members, is no more than 75% of the SMI , excluding the proportional part of the two extraordinary payments.
For these purposes, older children with a disability are considered to be those who have a degree of disability equal to or greater than 33%.
The income that will be taken into account will be any assets or rights, both from employment and capital, and any benefits received. The income taken into account will be the income for the year prior to the one in which the supplements are to be applied, and should exclude any income which is no longer received as a result of the event which gave rise to eligibility for the benefits, and any income which the beneficiaries can prove will not be received in the year in which the minimum supplements are to be applied.
