Their increase will be 8 lei, from 168 lei to 176 lei. At the same time, as of January 1, 2007, the minimum guaranteed income was increased, the indexation of the amount being also 4.5%.

Thus, the value of social assistance, in the case of single persons, was increased by 4 lei, from 92 lei to 96 lei.
Families made up of several people are somewhat better "maintained". Thus, for those consisting of two persons, the minimum guaranteed income is, after indexing, of 170 lei, for the families with three persons the aid amounts to 235 lei, while for the families with four members, it reaches the value of 291 lei.
