The 2021 Budget is clear, On December 31, the funds to continue developing the Emergency Assistance to Work and Production (ATP) and the Emergency Family Income (IFE). And the officials of the portfolios that carried out these measures were already anticipating it as well, in 2021 the official aid strategy will be different.

The official sources consulted by Infobae They explained that the intention of the Casa Rosada is to begin to change the aid model that was developed during this year and walk towards another model where the subsidy is transformed into another tool.

What will not continue during 2021, at least until today, is the Emergency Family Income (IFE). The plan that reached 9 million people will be discontinued because, like the ATP, the 2021 Budget is not considered as a departure due to the extension of the effects of the covid-19 pandemic.

The IFE consisted of a $ 10,000 bond that reached almost 9 million families on three occasions during 2020, despite the fact that it was expected to be paid monthly.

In the case of Work Plan seeks to generate new proposals and jobs and for that the Anses database regarding the IFE will be essential since they will try to overturn part of the plan’s beneficiaries that until recently were not on the state radar and that now not only that are identified but, in addition, there are just over 4 million who are now banked, because it was one of the requirements to be able to receive the Emergency Family Income.
