By BBN Staff: The Government of Belize (GOB) issued an update today informing that 13, 019 applications were excluded from phase 2 of the COVID-19 unemployment relief program.
These are applications from persons who fall under one of the following categories:
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;
Appear in the Social Security Board database as deceased persons; or
Have identified an employer that says the applicant did not work at their business establishment and follow up verification does not adequately clarify the situation.
GOB reminds that applicants can check their status and see that they have been excluded for the reasons stated above. If they feel that this is an error, they may provide additional information by sending an email to [email protected] so that their application can be reviewed.
Even as additional applicants have been automatically added to the excluded list, hundreds have been removed once the information is provided.
