The Government meets tomorrow with the self-employed and social agents to address the benefit for cessation of activity

MADRID, 25 Feb. (EUROPA PRESS) -

The Ministry of Inclusion, Social Security and Migration will meet this Monday with social agents and representatives of self-employed workers to analyze the benefit for cessation of activity of said group, as indicated by ministerial sources to Europa Press.

The Minister of Inclusion, Social Security and Migration, Elma Saiz, already announced at the beginning of February, during a Europa Press breakfast, that an observatory would be created to monitor the unemployment benefits of the self-employed, which the Union of Associations of Self-Employed Workers and Entrepreneurs (Uatae) announced that it would be next Monday, February 26.

The head of Social Security stressed that, after a few years of implementation of the benefit for cessation of activity, it is time to evaluate whether what has been done works well or badly "hand in hand with social dialogue."

Therefore, this Monday, the Secretary of State for Social Security and Pensions, Borja Suárez, will chair the social dialogue table on the self-employed, which will be attended by UGT, CCOO, CEOE and self-employed organizations such as ATA, Uatae and UPTA.

With the call of this table, the fiftieth additional provision of Royal Decree Law 13/2022 is fulfilled, which establishes a new contribution system for self-employed or self-employed workers and improves protection for cessation of activity, where includes the creation of this observatory for the analysis and monitoring of the benefit for cessation of activity for economic reasons of self-employed workers, as indicated by sources from the Ministry.

This benefit for cessation of activity allowed one million self-employed workers to face the consequences of the pandemic and in 2023 a total of 14,000 self-employed workers accessed this benefit, for which it is necessary to contribute, Saiz detailed during the Europa Press breakfast.

The call for this observatory is a demand from self-employed organizations, which have stated that the benefit for cessation of activity for self-employed workers is still not a "completely protective and effective" measure.

This is how the general secretary of Uatae, María José Landaburu, stated, after the minister's announcement, that "the data shows that in the last year 20,000 people requested it and more than 10,000 were denied or gave up." However, Landaburu welcomed the creation of this observatory, a "central demand" of the group.

A demand that has been shared by the president of UPTA, Eduardo Abad, who indicated that the improvement of the cessation of activity in the self-employed was one of the "non-extendable" issues for 2024.

For his part, the president of ATA, Lorenzo Amor, expressed his desire that this observatory serve so that "once and for all" the self-employed can access the subsidy for those over 52 years of age, "obviously after making a contribution", for which He assured "willingness" on the part of the self-employed to increase the rates if this group is allowed to access the subsidy.

Likewise, Uatae expressed their desire for this observatory to be used to carry out an analysis and monitoring of the RETA reform, addressing all issues related to the equalization of rights and obligations of self-employed workers, as well as progress towards a contribution system. by real income.
