By BBN Staff: The Government of Belize informed today that over 60,000 people applied for the COVID-19 unemployment relief program since the portal opened on August 3, 2020.
According to a statement from the government, almost 10,000 applicants submitted applications with incomplete information, such as missing banking information.
The statement says that the applicants have been notified and were given the opportunity to review and correct their applications.
“Many have already done so and 5,913 remain to be corrected. This number is decreasing daily,” the statement explained.
In addition,8,144 applications have been rejected where applicants did not qualify for the program because:
They are BOOST recipients;
Receive Government or Social Security Pension;
Applied as “long term unemployed” in Phase 1 – that category is not available in phase 2;
Are below the age of 18; or
Appear in Social Security Board records as deceased persons.
Applicants who are informed that they have been excluded for any of these reasons, and feel that this should not have been done, may provide additional information by sending an email to [email protected] so that the application can be reviewed.
