The Ministry of Social Security and Labour (SADM) has expressed disagreement to the Social Democrat Labour initiative to link the size of state supported income to the minimum consumption needs size (MPVD) and to continue raising it by 10% every year. A similar goal was set by the parties, including the Social Democratic Labour Party (LSDDP), when they signed the new coalition agreement.

The legislative project which would increase the 2020-2023 state supported income by 10% and in 2024 – link it to the last year’s MPVD was registered by Seimas Social Democrat Labour members Irena Šiaulienė, Andrius Palionis, Algirdas Butkevičius and Rimantė Šalaševičiūtė.
