Additional Supports Payments

Our government met today to put in place additional supports for our people, both employees and employers who are badly impacted by the economic effects of the virus. The additional supports will include;

1. The emergency support payment for those who have lost their job will rise from €203 to €350 per week.

2. The state will pay 70% of salaries of workers who are kept on their employer’s payroll at a maximum of €410 per week.

Additional detail later.
