G.O.B. Announces COVID-19 Unemployment Top-up Cards

Over eighty thousand persons applied for the COVID-19 Unemployment Relief, but only forty-three thousand applications were approved. Many persons, however, complained of not having received any assistance, despite receiving a text message confirming their approval; others say they only received a single disbursement of one hundred and fifty dollars over the course of the last three months. Millions of dollars have been spent and the programme is now transitioning into a second phase. Today, the government announced that a number of approved applicants of the COVID-19 Unemployment Relief will be receiving top-up cards. But this is for those who still have not been able to receive their approved payments due to banking information errors. Those persons are asked to send a text with their correct telephone number to 613-0095 so that they can be contacted.
