Considering the target set out in the programs of the XXI and XXII Constitutional Governments, where some goals were outlined to increase the RMMG, Decree-Law no. 109-B/2021 determines the increase to 705 € of this value, starting from 1 January 2022.
In order to promote a more dignified work, encouraging growth and trying to balance the RMMG with the costs of living currently practiced in Portugal, the Government increased this value, not disregarding, however, the financial burden that this increase entails for companies.
Thus, in addition to this increase, the Government has accompanied this RMMG with an exceptional support measure, as the increase carries a financial burden in the current conjuncture for companies. In this context, the Decree-Law under analysis provides the grant to Employers of an allowance corresponding to a fixed amount per Employee receiving the RMMG.
This allowance has a fixed value of 112 euros per Employee that, in the remuneration maps for the month of December 2021, earns a value of basic remuneration equivalent to the RMMG for 2021 (665€).
In cases where the Employee, in the remuneration statement for the month of December 2021, earns a value of basic remuneration higher than the RMMG for 2021 and lower than the RMMG for 2022, the support corresponds to 50% of 112€ per Employee.
The benefit of 112€ is also applied to the Employees that, in the declaration of remuneration for the month of December 2021, had the value of basic remuneration higher than the RMMG for 2021 and lower than RMMG for 2022, when that value was foreseen in a collective Employment regulation instrument in place, reviewed, or modified in 2021, provided that, in December 2020, the base remuneration declared was lower than the RMMG for 2021.
In order to apply to this support, the Employers must show evidence that, in the remuneration statement for the month of December 2021, one or more full-time employees, earn a basic remuneration equal or higher than the RMMG for 2021 and lower than the RMMG for 2022. They must also have, at the time of payment of the support, their tax and social security situation in order before the tax and social security authorities, respectively.
