The ISEEU is an instrument which measures the effective financial resources and the income of anyone asking for welfare benefits. The results are obtained by combining and assessing the income, assets and composition of the family unit.

EUR 165.00 for the regional tax for financial aid, EUR 202.00 for the basic enrolment fee, and EUR 16.00 for stamp duty must be added to the amount calculated with the procedure above.
