Given the information and statements of some people who appeared in the media and social networks about the extraordinary benefit for self-employed affected by COVID-19, the Ministry of Inclusion, Social Security and Migration wants to indicate:

1. All the self-employed people forced to close due to the state of alarm or with a fall in income of 75%, are already entitled to the benefit approved in the last Council of Ministers, regardless of their condition. Therefore, the Ministry denies that the Government prepares any modification.

2. The self-employed in this situation will be exempt from paying Social Security contributions and, in addition, they will receive a benefit equivalent to 70% of the regulatory base, which means a minimum of € 661 for those who have had to close their business or have lost 75% of your turnover.

3. The fake news and many hoaxes aim to generate uncertainty among the self-employed. Any questions can be consulted in the official websites of the Ministry of Inclusion, Social Security and Migrations.

4. The Government continues to work on draft measures, such as this extraordinary benefit, to help those who are experiencing difficulties.
