More changes with the new account rules

That’s not all that changes with the new account rules. Employers with employees who earn close to the minimum income can count on the allowance. This allowance is also referred to as the Low Income Benefit (fiber) name of the thing. Starting July 1, 2023, the income limits for Youth LIV will also change. From July 1, these limits will be revised, based on average minimum wages in 2023 – including changes in minimum income from January and July.

The higher the minimum wage, the greater the threshold for employers’ eligibility for the allowance. This can take up to hundreds of euros per year per employee.

Low income benefits limits minimum the highest rate
20 years 9.79 euros 12.04 euros
19 years 7.34 euros 10.89 euros
18 years 6.12 euros 8.17 euros

High benefits

The allowance will also increase for Dutch people who have an allowance due to disability, for example. This amount depends on the net minimum wage the employees are paid. Single people from the age of 21 who receive benefits can count on 70 percent of the net minimum wage. Are you married? Then you are entitled to 100 percent of the gross minimum wage.
