On 19 September 2023, the Labour Court of Trento ruled that holders of a residence permit for awaiting employment are also entitled to receive the Single Universal Allowance (AUU). The permit for awaiting employment is, in fact, one of the ‘single work permits’, as it is a title that enables the holder to carry out a work activity for at least one year from the date of registration on the employment lists.
The single and universal allowance is an economic support to families with dependent children and is also due to foreign citizens. In particular, the single allowance is due not only to Italian citizens but also to
– citizens of a European Union Member State or their family members who have the right of residence or the right of permanent residence
– nationals of a non-European Union Member State holding an EU long-term residence permit or a single work permit authorised to work for a period exceeding six months
– holders of a residence permit for research purposes authorised to reside in Italy for a period exceeding six months
– holders of a residence permit for awaiting employment
What are the amounts?
The allowance ranges from a minimum of € 50 per month to a maximum of € 175 per month for each dependent minor child.
For dependent children aged between 18 and 21, the amounts range from a minimum of €25 per month to a maximum of €85 per month.
There are increases in the case of dependent children with disabilities, mothers under the age of 21, large families, both parents working, and families with an Isee of less than € 25,000.
How to obtain the single universal allowance for dependent children
– For all new born children and for those who did not receive the allowance in 2022, the application can be submitted on the Inps website or through patronage institutions (Apply on the INPS website)
– From March 2023, those who have already received the allowance do not need to renew their application. In fact, renewal of the application will be automatic, if the application submitted has not been rejected, revoked or died.
– The allowance is disbursed by crediting the Iban or by direct debit transfer, except in the case of citizenship income recipients for whom, as long as the measure remains in force, it is disbursed on the same income card.
– Children aged over 18 and under 21 must fulfil one of the following conditions to benefit from the allowance
a. attend a school or vocational training course, or a degree course;
b. undertake an apprenticeship or work activity and have a total income of less than €8,000 per year;
