About this procedure

What you need to do it

  • You will need to fill in and attach the application form available in the Attached documentation section of this service.

To do this, you must attach an image of a document showing your willingness to apply for the Minimum Vital Income benefit and showing both the applicant's signature and those of each adult or emancipated minor member of the household unit listed on the application.

    To do this, you can write this text or something similar on a piece of paper, with clear and legible handwriting:

    Handwritten signature with full name and DNI/NIE number. The document must include the signature and details of the applicant and all household unit members listed on the application.
     
  • Please attach the documents required according to your circumstances and which you will find at the end of the application form, available in the Attached documentation section of this service.
     
  • If you are acting as a representative, you must access the service by selecting 'in your own name' and using a digital certificate or User + Password (permanent Cl@ve). Once inside the service, select that you are acting as a representative and follow the instructions. You must attach the standardised representation form, which can be found in the accompanying documents section, or any legally valid document that is proof of the representation.

Please note

Please read this information carefully to correctly fill out the application:

  • You can submit the application by logging in and signing with a digital certificate or Cl@ve user and password.
     
  • It is important that you indicate the province of your tax address in the province field.
     
  • The documentation required is listed at the end of the application form.
     
  • It is important to verify that the current account in which you apply for payment is a Social Security contributor financial institution. You can consult them at this link. Locate the second 4-digit block in your bank account IBAN and look for it in the list. If it does not appear, you must provide us with an account code at any financial entity in the list.
     
  • If you are acting as a representative, you must attach the standardised representation form, which can be found in the accompanying documents section, or any legally valid document that is proof of the representation. 
     
  • The application must be signed by the applicant and by each adult or emancipated minor member of the household unit  listed on the application. If you use the form in PDF and you do not have a printer and scanner, you can sign it on the touch screen of your mobile or tablet using an appropriate application. You can also attach a copy of your DNI/NIE and an image of the document accrediting your willingness to apply for the benefit signed by you and all members of the household unit, indicating the full name of each person underneath their signature. To do this, you can copy this text or similar on a piece of paper, with clear and legible handwriting:

    “Please consider this document accompanying my application dated………..as accreditation of my wish to request the minimum vital income.
    Signed: “

    and then the applicant's full name, handwritten signature and ID/NIE number and, if any, the full name and handwritten signature for each member of the household unit.  
  • The maximum size for all documentation is 10Mb. Please reduce the size and resolutions of what you send us as much as possible so that you do not have problems attaching the documentation.
     
  • If you are unable to provide all the documentation at once, divide the documentation to be attached into two groups that are no more than 10Mb each and apply twice. The second time you do not need to attach the filled in form again, just the documentation indicating  in the comments field that it is the second submission and providing the register number given by the application on completing the first submission.
     
  • If you log in with cl@ve user and password, to ensure the highest level of security, when you sign the application a code via SMS will be sent to the mobile number you indicated when registering in Cl@ve. 

Next steps

  • Once the process has been completed, you will receive an “proof of receipt” in PDF format with the assigned electronic register number.
  • This register number assigned is not the same code (SVC) as obtained in the service without a certificate, so you cannot consult an application in the service without a certificate with the electronic register number. In this case, the system will indicate that the application does not exist.
  • If you do not receive the confirmation message or you receive an error or transmission failure message, you must submit the documentation at another time or through other means. 

The INSS will send the resolution of the application to the applicant’s address within a maximum of  six months.
