Cover Allowance 2023 – Until when is the payment due?
Let us remind you that the coverage allowance was supposed to be paid by local governments by the end of December 2022, but so many applications were submitted that the officials did not check all the documents. Therefore, the government extended payment deadlines in the new law Until December 31, 2023.
In the Law of December 17, 2021 regarding coverage allowance, we read in Article 2 § 8:
Coverage allowance is payable to persons for the period January 1, 2022 to December 31, 2022 and is payable in two equal instalments by March 31, 2022 and by December 31, 2023.
The Ministry of Climate and Environment confirms this Failure to pay coverage benefits by December 31, 2022 does not preclude the right to this benefit its beneficiaries. An amount of PLN 500 million has been reserved for the payment of the allowance in 2023, portalsamorzadowy.pl reports. However, this does not mean that the coverage allowance will also be in 2023.
How is the coverage allowance 2023 paid?
The coverage allowance is paid for the period From January 1, 2022 to December 31, 2022 It is paid in two equal installments on time By March 31, 2022 and by December 31, 2023. If a person applies for the payment of a coverage allowance two months after the expiry of these deadlines, the coverage allowance is paid at once immediately after the grant of the benefit.
Will there be an additional shield 2023? What is known?
A provision has also been made to the law relating to the coverage allowance in Article 4 that the Mayor, Mayor or City Chief is obliged to provide the voivodeship with information on:
- The number of pending procedures in respect of the payment of the coverage allowance, for which, as to the filing of the appeal, there has been no final decision of the public administration body or the administrative tribunal, resulting in the award of the coverage allowance, and
- of the total amount of coverage allowances which is the subject of these procedures,
inside Until June 15, 2023-2025.
The Voivodeship will be obliged to provide this aggregate information to the Minister for Energy and the Minister for Finance.
This ruling indicates that the protective supplementary state will not expire in 2023. Unfortunately, right now, lawmakers are not planning to cover the 2023 supplement. But let’s hope that depending on the state of the market, the government will respond to the needs of the poor as it has done so far.
So far, the shielding allowance has been passed only once – in 2022. There is no information that it will be paid out every year.
