Components The different components of the social inclusion income (REVIS)

REVIS is made up of:

  • the inclusion benefit, which is a financial aid that provides a basic means of subsistence to people who have no income or whose income does not reach a certain threshold;
  • the activation allowance, which is an allowance for people who participate in activation measures under REVIS.

Inclusion benefit

The benefit is paid to the member of the household named as the primary beneficiary in the application.

The maximum monthly social inclusion benefit includes:

  • a basic flat-rate amount per adult;
  • a basic flat-rate amount per child for which a household member is receiving family benefits;
  • a higher basic flat-rate amount for each child living in a single-parent household and for whom the parent is receiving family benefit;
  • an amount to cover household expenses;
  • an amount to cover household expenses, increased by a certain margin when the household includes one or more children for whom an adult is receiving family benefits.

The social inclusion benefit is subject to payment of:

  • health insurance and long-term care insurance contributions:
  • pension insurance contributions, if the beneficiary:
    • has been a member of a pension insurance scheme in Luxembourg and/or abroad for at least 25 years;
    • does not have a personal pension under a Luxembourg pension scheme, or has not reached the age of 65.

Activation allowance

A person who participates in community work as part of his or her activation plan is entitled to an activation allowance.

The activation allowance is calculated on the basis of the social minimum wage for an unskilled employee, taking account of the number of hours worked.

The activation allowance is subject to social security contributions and income tax.
