ĐÀ NẴNG — The Đà Nẵng People’s Council has decided to increase support levels and expand social protection beneficiaries to ensure social security.

The decision amended and supplemented Resolution 34/2021/NQ-HĐND, issued on August 12, 2021.

Under its decision, elderly individuals aged 75 to 80 without a pension, social insurance, or monthly allowance will be issued health insurance.

Upon their demise, the support for funeral costs will be increased to a level that is 20 times higher than the current amount.

People with cancer or chronic kidney failure certified by competent health agencies and without pension, salary, social insurance or monthly allowance are eligible to receive support 1.5 times higher than the current level.

They will also receive health insurance and funeral cost support upon death equal to 20 times the current rate.

The same support will be delivered to people with mild disabilities who are the third generation of soldiers in the resistance wars infected with toxic chemicals.

Đà Nẵng now has over 12,500 elderly people.

Each year, the city spends about VNĐ60 billion (US$2.4 million) to support them with VNĐ400,000 ($16) per person per month.

In particular, the city spent more than VNĐ4 billion ($163,300) for 850 elderly people aged 75-80 without pensions or monthly social insurance.

Under the decision from the Đà Nẵng People’s Council, poor households are also supported to build new houses at VNĐ80 million ($3,200) per house. Previously the support level was VNĐ50 million.

Housing repair support will cost VNĐ30 million ($1,200) per house. Previously the support level was VNĐ20 million.

Within three years after escaping from poverty based on the city’s regulations, households can still borrow capital with loan and interest rates applicable to low-income families.

Households with an average living standard are supported with loans like the programmes for poor households regulated by the national standards. — VNS
