One-off aid to be paid to pensioners and disabled people

On Thursday, March 11, the Saeima approved a one-off payment for pensioners and disabled people.

The allowance of €200 will be received by people declared in Latvia who receive:

  • old-age pension;
  • compensation for the loss of a guardian;
  • compensation for loss of working capacity;
  • State social security allowance;
  • special care allowance for children and adults.

 The payout is scheduled to start in April. 

If a person receives several benefits at the same time, such as an old-age pension and compensation for loss of capacity, one payment will be granted to the person.

Previously, benefits of €500 per each child were granted to families.
