Activity Commitment

To be beneficiaries of the programme, in addition to meeting the established requirements, workers must apply and sign the Commitment to Work, as described in Article 215.2 of the revised text of the General Social Security Act, approved by Royal Legislative Decree 1/1994, of 20 June. This sets out the different actions determined by the public state employment service for the individual job placement plan, which will be implemented for as long as the worker is part of the programme.


To join the programme, workers must submit their applications at their local Social Marine Institute together with the documentation proving that they meet the current requirements at the time of submitting the application.

Joining and Implementing the Programme

Once they have joined the programme, the recipient has the right to receive the income and participate in and benefit from the following actions throughout the whole time they are involved in it:

  • Individual tutorial.
  • Labour market integration itinerary.
  • Occupational interview by tutor to define their occupational profile.
  • Preparation of a personal labour market integration plan. Determination of a timetable and activities to be carried out.
  • Management of job offers.
  • Inclusion in employment and/or training plans.
  • Inclusion in voluntary actions.


The income amount is 80% of the monthly Public Indicator of Multiple Effect Income (IPREM) in force at any time, 426.00 euros/month for 2013.

When receiving the Active Insertion Income, the Public State Employment Service will make the Social Security contributions for medical assistance benefits and, where applicable, family protection benefits.

Victims of gender violence or victims of domestic violence who have been forced to move home and can provide proof of this change of address within the 12 months preceding their application to join the Programme, or while they are on the Programme, may receive a single additional payment of three months' of the active insertion income without this reducing the duration of this income. This additional payment can only be received once for every entitlement to join the active insertion income programme.

Workers accepted onto the Programme who are self-employed or work as a full-time employee, will receive a benefit equal to 25% of their income for a maximum of 180 days, irrespective of the number of employment contracts or self-employment activities carried out. Receiving this benefit will not reduce the duration of the active insertion income.

Acquisition of a right to benefits

As a result of joining the programme, workers will receive the active job placement income the day after the date of application; the date on which the Social Security contributions become due.


The maximum duration of the income is 11 months.


Workers in the programme will leave it permanently if one of the following circumstances occurs:

  • Failure to fulfil the obligations in the Activity Commitment that are specified in the personal labour market integration plan, except for just cause.
  • Failing to appear, by prior requirement, before the National Employment Institute or Public Employment Services, not resuming their job search in the form and time frames specified in the job search resumption document, or not returning to the Public Employment Services within the given time frame the relevant note confirming their appearance at the place and time indicated to fill the job offers provided by these services, except for just cause.
  • Rejection of an appropriate job offer or participation in employment programmes or occupational integration, guidance, promotion, training or retraining programmes, except for just cause.
  • Self-employed or working for another person on a full-time basis for six months or more.
  • Obtaining Social Security pensions or economic benefits that are incompatible with work or which, even if they are not, exceed the limits set for receiving active insertion income, or obtaining welfare assistance as a gender-based violence victim who cannot participate in employment programmes.
  • Not meeting the lack of income requirement for more than six months.
  • Receiving unemployment benefit or Agricultural Income.
  • Moving abroad, except when working or receiving further training for less than six months.
  • Voluntary renunciation of active insertion income.
  • Unduly obtaining or continuing to receive active insertion income.
  • Coming to the end of the maximum allowed time for active insertion income.


Workers will temporarily leave the programme in one of the following cases:

  • Working full time for another person for less than six months.
  • Being self-employed for less than six months.
  • Exceeding the income limit for less than six months.
  • Moving abroad to search for work or to carry out work, professional development or international cooperation for a continuous period of less than six months.
  • Going abroad for no more than 15 calendar days once a year will not be considered to be a change of residence, even though the recipient is obliged to inform the Social Security of this situation.

Once they have left the programme for any of the provided reasons, the interested party will only be able to rejoin by submitting an application within 15 days of finishing their self-employed work, or upon returning to Spain, after registering as a job seeker and reactivating the Commitment to Work on the day of the application. An application made outside this time frame will result in the loss of as many days of income as there are between the date on which they would have rejoined the programme if they had made the request in a timely manner and the date on which the application was actually made.

If they leave the programme because they no longer meet the lack of individual income or family unit requirement, the worker will rejoin the programme the day after the date of application, as long as they can once again prove that they meet the requirements within six months of temporarily leaving the programme, after registering as a job seeker and reactivating the commitment to work.

After leaving a full-time job where they were employed by another person, the worker will once again receive active insertion income as long as they are registered as a job seeker and the administrative body is aware of the involuntary nature of their job termination due to its being a temporary relationship or if this involuntary termination is recorded in their working life report.
