One in five people in Amsterdam lives in poverty. These people are, to a large extent, dependent on the state for their income. That income consists of a wide range of benefits for which people must apply. These benefits are subject to various rules, which mutually influence each other.
All income-related benefits have so many rules and exceptions that it is almost impossible for both the target group and care providers to have a clear view of all the mutual interdependencies. As a result, national or municipal benefits are sometimes requested, which influence each other negatively and inadvertently have an adverse impact on the applicant’s income. Also, it is often unclear for the applicant what is permitted in order to be eligible for benefits.
Develop a tool that gives a care provider easy insight into the consequences of a change in income or lifestyle (e.g. moving in with a partner) for a person with minimum income.
