Eligible families

The Unified Social Register introduces a new family targeting system, developed in cooperation with the High Commission for Planning.
This system is based on the allocation to each registered family of a numerical indicator reflecting its social and economic status and on the determination of the eligibility threshold for each social assistance programme.
Each family registered in the Unified Social Register will receive a socio-economic indicator calculated according to a formula developed by the High Commission for Planning based on household expenditure surveys.
A threshold for families to benefit from each social support program will be calculated separately, depending on the objectives of the program and the funds available for it. All families whose index is below this threshold are eligible to benefit from the program concerned.
The eligibility threshold is a numerical value that is determined for each social support program according to its objectives and the funds available to it. A family is eligible for the program if its socio-economic index is below the eligibility threshold for the program in question.
In addition to the eligibility determined by the Unified Social Registry targeting system, the family must meet the conditions of the relevant support system (school-aged children, widows and cases of disability).
The formula for calculating the social and economic indicator of the family takes into account three elements, namely the demographic, social and economic characteristics of the family, the destination of the family and the center of residence of the family (urban or rural ).
The characteristics of the family include several indicators, namely its composition, demographic data on family members, professional status, type of housing, equipment, usual expenses (gas, water, electricity, etc.), durable goods, etc. ; Most of these indicators can be verified by the organizations concerned.
The family records are declared by the declarant during the process of registration in the unified social register and are automatically verified thanks to the networking of the information system of the unified social register with the systems of other organizations (agencies and distribution companies water and electricity, telecommunications companies, the National Road Safety Agency, the Governorate Real Estate, etc.).
The declarant of the socio-economic indicator is notified by email or SMS within 5 to 10 days from the date of registration.
Each family registered in the unified social register may request a review of the rating assigned to it by the agency within a period not exceeding sixty days from the date of notification to the author of this rating.
