The home care salary paid by the Ministry of Family, Labor and Social Services was increased in January 2022. Along with the 50 percent increase in the minimum wage, the wages of 65-year-old pension, disability pension, home care allowance, seniority and notice indemnity were also increased. So, how much is the home care salary? How much is the disability pension in 2022?
How much is the home care salary??
With the minimum wage increase in 2022, it has been determined how much the home care allowance will be this year. This year, the minimum wage was increased by 50,5%. In this context, home care allowance was increased from 798 TL to 2 thousand 706 TL.
Who can receive home care allowance??
In order to benefit from this assistance, it is necessary to be at least 50 percent disabled or severely disabled, and to determine that the person in need of care is disabled by the care services evaluation committee in the provincial directorates of the Ministry of Family and Social Services. The health board report must include the phrase 'severely disabled'. Home care salary is not paid to those with a disability of less than 50 percent.
Persons whose average monthly income per person in the household is less than two-thirds of the monthly net amount of the minimum wage can benefit from this assistance.
With the latest changes in this regard, step-relatives can also receive home care allowance. Again, regardless of the disability rate, if the disability health report includes the phrase 'requires special conditions or very special conditions' for children under the age of 18, the disabled relative can benefit from home care assistance.
For those over the age of 18, if the report includes the expression 'fully dependent', the disabled relative can still get help.
