By BBN Staff: Today, the portal re-opened to accept applications for the COVID-19 unemployment relief program.
The program offers financial relief to workers who have been laid off because of COVID-19 and Self-employed persons who have lost their jobs and income as a result of the impact of COVID-19.
Long-term unemployed persons who were not approved in Phase 1 have been referred to the Ministry of Human Development for consideration in relation to the expanded programs being offered by that Ministry.
According to the official website, long-term unemployed persons will not be eligible in Phase 2.
The financial relief to be provided in Phase 2 will be the same as that provided in Phase 1-$150 every two weeks for a 12-week period.
Persons who do not qualify for the program are those under 18 years of age and anyone receiving benefits from other government programs such as BOOST or Pantry of the Ministry of Human Development and persons receiving a pension from Government or Social Security Board.
