Subsistence minimum

The subsistence minimum is a socially recognised minimum level of income of a natural person; any person whose income is below this level is considered to be in material need.

The subsistence minimum is always adjusted on 1 July of the current calendar year based on the coefficient of the growth of the net monetary income per capita or the coefficient of the growth of subsistence costs in low-income households. These data are provided by the Statistical Office of the Slovak Republic.
