Italy unveils €200 bonus for 28 million workers and pensioners

Who is eligible for Italy's €200 bonus and when will it arrive?

Italian prime minister Mario Draghi on Monday unveiled a new package aimed at giving financial support to pensioners and workers with an annual income of less than €35,000.

Some 28 million people in Italy - including pensioners and low and middle income workers - are set to receive a one-off payment of €200 this summer.

The €200 "bonus" is part of a €14 billion stimulus plan which will be partly financed from a tax on additional profits made by energy companies due to rising prices.

Pensioners can expect an extra €200 in July while employees are due to recieve the bonus with their pay check "between June and July", according to economy and finance minister Daniele Franco.
