Support measures – Compensation for increased RMMG

dailly covid

The Government has created an exceptional measure of compensation for increasing the amount of the Minimum Guaranteed Monthly Remuneration (RMMG).

It is recalled that on January 1, 2021, the value of RMMG went from 635,00€ to 665,00€, contributing on the one hand to improving the purchasing power of workers and, on the other hand, to improving the levels of social cohesion in the country.
In order to compensate for the financial effort of the companies, the Government has simultaneously committed itself to present an exceptional measure to employers by granting a cash allowance per worker who benefits the RMMG, when the following conditions are met:

  1. Submit, in the remuneration statement for the month of December 2020, one or more full-time employees, with the value of the basic remuneration declared equal to or greater than 635,00€ and less than 665,00€;
  2. Have, at the time of payment of the subsidy, their tax and contributory situations regularized,before, respectively, the tax administration and social security.

Grant Amount

Awarded on the basis of the remuneration declared on 12/2020, in the following terms:

  • 84,50€ per worker who receives 635,00€;
  • 42,25€ per worker who received between 635,00€ and 665,00€.

Access to the measure

By registering on a platform to be made available by IAPMEI and Turismo de Portugal, the latter is directed to a list of activities related to hotels, restaurants, travel agencies and other entities with a direct impact on tourism.


The payment of the allowance is made within a maximum of 30 days, counted from the mandatory electronic registration.


Applications end on 25/06/2021.

Cumulation of supports

This measure may be combined with other employment support applicable to the same job, including those granted under the COVID-19 disease pandemic, the allocation of which is, by its nature, dependent on conditions inherent to contracted workers.
