20,500 payments for self-employed and child care allowance fulfilled on Tuesday, MoL says

In an update on the progress of payments for the government’s support schemes for workers and businesses financially hit by the coronavirus outbreak, the Ministry of Labour announced that on Tuesday 20,500 payments were processed for the childcare scheme and the self-employed scheme.

The Ministry advised that payments will continue in the coming days for those who provided bank account details and meet the requirements.

In addition, it said that for those who applied for the childcare allowance and the self-employed allowance and have not received payment, it means that their applications require further processing and will receive a relevant update by SMS in the coming days.

For civil servants and employees in the wider public sector who applied for the childcare allowance, relevant arrangements with competent accounts departments will take place, taking into account that their salaries have been paid at the end of March.

Payments for the Special Sick Leave Allowance and the Special Unemployment Allowance for the Partial and Complete Suspension of Business schemes will continue in the coming days for those who meet the criteria and whose bank details have been confirmed and their applications require no further processing.
