The size of the subsistence level in 2015

This information will be useful for families with low income applying for state or municipal subsidies and benefits.

In accordance with subclause 1 of Part 8 of § 2 of the Budget law of the Republic of Estonia for 2015, the subsistence level for a person living separately or the first member of each individual family in this year is EUR 90. The subsistence level for the second and each subsequent family member, in accordance with Part 12 of § 22 of the Social security law of the Republic of Estonia, amounts to 80% of the subsistence level of the first family member, i.e. EUR 72.

Changes in the legislation concerned the calculation of the subsistence level for underage persons: if no difference was made before and persons under 18 were equated to all other adult family members starting from the second, but from the beginning of 2015, in accordance with Part 13 of § 22 of the Social security law of the Republic of Estonia, the subsistence level for underage persons becomes equal to the subsistence level of the first family member and will amount to EUR 90 in 2015.
