Amount Amount 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.

Calculation of Revis

The amount of REVIS is determined on the basis of the composition of the household and the income of its members.

Applicants must declare their full gross income and all other financial assets, as well as those of their household members to the FNS.

Income to be declared

The income to be declared includes :

  • professional income (wages, etc.);
  • replacement income (monetary benefits for sickness, maternity, unemployment, work-related accident or illness, parental leave allowance, etc.);
  • pensions received (whether from Luxembourg or abroad);
  • benefits received as part of an employment programme run by ADEM;
  • the benefit paid to people participating in an activation measure by the ONIS;
  • rent received on owned property (e.g. an apartment, a house, a parking space, etc.);
  • maintenance/support payments;
  • direct or indirect donations made or received;
  • inheritances.

Exempt income

Some incomes are not taken into account in the calculation of the REVIS:

  • family benefits;
  • back-to-school allowance;
  • birth allowance;
  • special allowance for severely disabled people;
  • long-term care insurance payments (in cash);
  • the earned income of a child under 25, until and unless it is equal to the maximum social inclusion benefit for an adult;
  • State financial aid (e.g. cost-of-living benefit, financial aid for housing, etc.), aid from social welfare offices and other private social welfare charities.

*When the total income to be taken into account exceeds this threshold, referred to here as the exit point, the domestic community in most cases no longer meets the conditions of Article 2(1)(c) of the amended Act of 28 July 2018 on the social inclusion income. However, in certain cases (notably Article 9(3) of the amended Act of 28 July 2018) exceptions are provided for regarding the inclusion of certain income. In case of doubt, it is therefore strongly recommended to apply for the social inclusion income.

Inclusion benefit

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

The maximum monthly 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.
