Anses: Update on AUH’s requirements for collecting a Food Card

This month a new increase in the Minimum Wage, Living and Mobile comes into effect (SMVM). The measure has an impact on various benefits set by the National Social Security Administration (Respect). For example, the requirements attached to the Universal Child Allowance (Ouch) and the food card.

The Food Card is a monthly payment subsidy granted within the framework of Argentina’s Plan Against Hunger.

This program is led by the Ministry of Social Development, which grants it according to Anses data. People who meet the requirements cannot process the benefit. That is, they must wait for the direct award to be made.

The plan applies to AUH holders who have children up to 14 years of age, inclusive and disabled; Pregnancy Allowance, if given from the third month of collection; and non-contributory pension (PNC) for mothers of 7 children.
