2086 applications for parents’ allowance so far

So far, a total of 2068 applications have been submitted online for special parental allowance, Labour Minister Zeta Emilianidou said on Sunday afternoon.

The scheme is for parents of children under 15 or of children with disabilities who have been obliged to stay home and look after their children because of the closing of the schools. Special criteria apply.

The applications went online last night, after Friday’s approval by the House of Representatives of 10 bills in a package of measures to protect employees, businesses and the self-employed from the economic crisis caused by the coronavirus epidemic.

The Labour Miniustrry has also asked those who may qualify for any of the schemes to submit their bank details so that if approved, the funds can be transferred.

Emilianidou said that some 34,000 have already submitted their bank details.
