Available for unmarried children under the age of 19 to 30 in households receiving housing benefits if they are renting a different city or county from their parents for the purpose of enrollment or job search
[아시아경제 박종일 기자] Mapo-gu (Gu Yoo, Dong-gyun) announced that it will implement the’Separate Payment of Youth Housing Allowance’ from this year in order to promote the independence of unmarried youth in their twenties who live away from their parents for reasons of attendance or job search among household members receiving housing benefits.
The housing benefit support system is a policy that subsidizes the rent (rental benefit) or supports the renovation of the house (repair maintenance benefit) to stabilize housing and improve the living standard of low-income vulnerable households whose income recognized amount is 45% or less of the standard median income.
Lease benefits are paid up to 480,000 won for a household of four living in Seoul, and repair and maintenance benefits are supported based on the remuneration limit (light/medium/large) according to the age of the house.
According to the existing housing benefit system, even if an unmarried young man in his twenties living away from his parents and paying monthly rent in a household receiving housing benefit, it was recognized as the same household as his parents, and no rent was paid separately.
In order to compensate for these problems, the district will implement a separate payment policy for youth housing benefits, which pays separate rental benefits to low-income youth from this year.
The goal is to promote a stable future and self-reliance by allowing young people to concentrate on their studies and work without worrying about their home.
If the newly implemented Mapo-gu youth housing allowance is separately paid, unmarried children aged 19 years or older and under 30 years of age among household members who receive housing allowance and reside in a city or county different from the parent’s residence for school or employment purposes. Yes.
Depending on the rent, deposit, and other conditions, the maximum amount is 310,000 won per child per class 1 (Seoul), 239,000 won for class 2 (Gyeonggi, Incheon), 190,000 won for class 3 (city, Sejong), and class 4 (Others) 163,000 won, etc.
Supplied households wishing to pay separate payments for youth housing allowance in Mapo-gu can apply by visiting the local community center under the jurisdiction of their parents. Specific target selection criteria and rental benefits support methods can be consulted at the Residential Benefit Call Center or Mapo-gu Life Security Division.
Mapo-gu expects that the separate payment system for youth housing benefits, which is newly implemented this year, can provide practical help to low-income youth who are suffering from poor housing conditions.
Mapo-gu mayor Yu Dong-gyun said, “We will continue to carry out public relations activities to discover recipients so that there is no blind spot where they cannot receive housing benefits even though they are eligible for supply and demand,” he said.
