Cabinet OKs REI 'inclusion' benefit (2)

Anti-poverty benefit replaces SIA

(ANSA) - Rome, August 29 - The cabinet on Tuesday gave final approval to a decree introducing an Inclusion Income (REI) benefit for 400,000 Italian families including some 1.8 million people. The REI replaces the SIA benefit. The new anti-poverty benefit aims to help more people than the SIA and is part of the Gentiloni government's pledge to aid those left behind by a timid economic recovery.
