The gross amount of the RPGH corresponds to the amount of the social inclusion income (REVIS).
Contributions for health insurance and long-term care insurance are deducted from this amount.
If the beneficiary has been a member of the pension insurance scheme for at least 25 years, the pension insurance contributions are also deducted.
RPGH and other income
Applicants must declare to the FNS all earned and replacement income they receive in accordance with Luxembourg or foreign law.
The sum of all income taken into account for the calculation of the RPGH is reduced by 30 % of the RPGH base amount. The FNS will pay the difference between the base amount and the amount of all income taken into account.
In practice, in the event of professional or replacement income, the initial amount of the RPGH is adjusted as follows:
- if the amount of professional income or replacement income is lower than the RPGH, the amount paid will consist of the difference between the 2 amounts (the amount paid by the FNS will take into account contributions to health insurance, long-term care insurance and, where applicable, pension insurance as well as the adaptation of the consumer price index);
- if the beneficiary of the RPGH receives a disability pension, the FNS calculates the amount of the RPGH to be paid to him by deducting that paid by the National Pension Insurance Fund (CNAP)
- if the amount of professional income or replacement income is lower than the RPGH, the payment made by the FNS will consist of the difference between the two amounts.
