The National Government has established economic aid for the most vulnerable families in the country. This consists of a periodic transfer for a value of $80 thousand and seeks to reimburse the costs that these families had in VAT. In this way, the impact of this tax on finances is reduced and other government programs such as Colombia Mayor and Familias en Acción are completed.
According to the Department of Social Prosperity (DPS), more than two million households benefit from this economic aid payment. About a million of these people also receive help from the Mayor of Colombia and Familias en Acción. The aim of this program is to take into account the Sisbén group in which the person is classified.
Payment of this grant is made at the point designated by DPS for this purpose. Those who have priority to receive it should go to the offices on the date announced in the social networks. To collect the money order, it is necessary to bring the beneficiary’s original identification card. Remember that this procedure has no cost and does not require any intermediaries.
