The subsistence level for an adult in Slovakia increased by 2.9 percent, or Sk150, to Sk5,130 on July 1. The Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and the Family has set the new level in its regulation.

The subsistence level for other adults in a household increased by Sk100 to Sk3,580 and the level for a dependent child was raised by Sk70 to Sk2,340.

The ministry valorises the subsistence level annually on July 1 according to the development of living costs.
