ISEE: meaning and purposes

The “ISEE” is used to assess the Household Income (combined family members income and estate), when social benefits are requested in Italy.

If you are not eligible for the calculation of “ISEE università” value you have to  apply for ISEE equivalent value (“ISEE parificato”) in order to access to services and benefits.

You should request an ISEE equivalent (“ISEE parificato”), if you are:

  • a foreign national resident abroad
  • an Italian national resident abroad 
  • a foreign national resident in Italy and you are not financially independent.

The “ISEE università” value is in Euros.
