Dependent child or minor
Children or minors who live with and depend economically on the beneficiary will be considered "dependent children or minors in permanent foster care or pre-adoption guardianship" provided the other compulsory requirements have been met.
Unless proof is provided to the contrary, it will be understood that economic dependency exists when the child or minor in foster care lives with the recipient. The situation of living together is not changed by temporary separation due to studies, the work of the parents, adoptive or foster parents, medical treatment, rehabilitation or other similar causes.
The status of the dependent child or minor will not disappear due to paid work, as an employee or self-employed, as long as the child continues to live with the beneficiary and the annual income earned from the job does not exceed 100% of the MPW in force at any given time, calculated on an annual basis.
The child or minor will be considered "not dependent" on the recipient:
If the income received for their job or an income replacement benefit is more than 100% of the aforementioned MPW.
When they receive a contributory pension from a Spanish or foreign social protection scheme, different from the orphanage pension or pension for family members of grandchildren and siblings.
