Solidarity Income is an economic program created by the Government of Colombia during the coronavirus pandemic —which began in 2020— to support families or households in extreme poverty and vulnerability to mitigate the negative impacts of the emergency on that population. social of covid-19.

Who are the beneficiaries of Solidarity Income? More than 4 million households have been beneficiaries of the payments as of March 2022 and will continue to be so in May and subsequent months. The Social Investment Law made it possible to expand the benefits from 3 to just over 4 million households as of March 2022. Is it necessary to register to receive the economic contributions? No. Recipients do not need to enroll. The State itself will select them based on the Sisbén IV system. “The Solidarity Income Program does not handle registrations or raffles of any kind. The selection of potential beneficiaries is made through the information registered in Sisbén,” says the Department of Social Prosperity. How are those who receive the subsidy chosen? For this year, the Sisbén group information and the number of members of each household will be taken into account. The Sisbén is a state survey to find out the socioeconomic conditions of families and classifies them by “their ability to generate income and quality of life,” according to the National Planning Department (DPN) of Colombia. Sisbén IV —which is an updated version of the old Sisbén— changed from measuring the living conditions of households to their ability to generate income. Before there was a numerical score, now it is given with letters, like this: Group A is classified as extreme poverty Group B has moderate poverty Group C has the classification of “vulnerability” Group D is neither poor nor vulnerable So, going back, Solidarity Income will be given to just over 4 million families that are classified in categories A, B and C. How much money do Solidarity Income beneficiaries receive? For the months of March, April and May, the minimum amount that families were going to receive was going to be 160,000 pesos per month, at the current exchange rate, about US$40, but since March 2022 there has been an increase in the amount to 190,000. pesos. Payments are made every two months. As of June 2022, payments will be made for “differential incentive”, according to Susana Correa, director of the Department of Social Prosperity, which will depend on the level of Sisbén IV and the number of people in each household. A household with a member in group A will receive 400,000 pesos every two months. (Approximately US$100 at the current exchange rate) A household with a member of group B, 380,000 (US$97) A household with two people in group A will receive 440,000 pesos (about US$112)
A household with two people from group B will receive 396,000 (US$101) A household with three members from group A will receive 480,000 (US$122).

A household with 4 or more members of group B, 428,000 (US$ 109) Households of group C will continue to receive 380,000 pesos in bimonthly payments. How are payments received? Beneficiaries receive payments through their bank account (identified with their identity number) and they will be notified of the payment via text message. Those who do not have a bank account will receive the money through payment operators established for that purpose or through a digital wallet for that purpose.
