First payroll payment for low-income seniors goes out

By The Star Staff

Gov. Pedro Pierluisi Urrutia and acting Treasury Secretary Nelson Pérez Méndez announced Wednesday the sending of the first payroll of credit payments for low-income seniors and pensioners, approved for nearly $6 million.

“The first approved payroll is $5,701,522, corresponding to 12,200 processed returns, this on the second day of making the form available,” the governor said in a written statement. “We are pleased with the response of citizens and hope that many more will benefit from this aid. The payments should be seen in bank accounts in the coming days.”

Pérez Méndez noted that seniors and pensioners who qualify will receive refundable credits of $400 and $300.

“These can be requested from yesterday, July 2, until Oct. 14, 2024, through SURI accounts or using the services of the payroll specialists certified by the Treasury, available on the SURI homepage,” he said, referring to the Unified Internal Revenue System, as it is known by its acronym in Spanish.

The claim for credits is made exclusively electronically, including the submission of the required evidence such as identification with a date of birth. Paper forms will not be considered.

A microsite with all the necessary information about both credits is available on the Treasury Department website. Applicants must not have been claimed as dependents on the 2023 Income Tax Return, nor have received the Earned Income Tax Credit.

For more information, citizens can send a message through their SURI account or call 787-622-0123.
