Check out the doc in the Library, section Employment. It´s called ´Continued assistance when unemployment benefits cease for those over 55´. See if you meet the requirements for this ¨Ayuda¨ for those over 55, when unemployment benefits cease, also if you have a spouse and/or children in your household with no or very little income as well.

Update:12th March 2019 the government has approved a decree, lowering the age to access this benefit from the age of 52. The Decree doesn’t include any new instructions/requisites, but it is assumed they are the same as before, before the age was ´upped´ to 55. The good news is that the partial subsidy, granted to those whose last job was in partial employment, has been eliminated. All will receive the full amount.

When I receive this subsidio and inherit a sum, do I need to declare?
Yes you do, as when you do not do so, or not within the established timeframe, you run the risk of losing your entitlement could be sanctioned to return the subsidy amounts received since acceptance of the inheritance. Info HERE.
