A key component of the government’s corona rescue package is an expansion of the unemployment benefit services (ALS) to also include employees and self-employed workers suffering as a result of the corona lockdown.

Yesterday, the first of these supplements, covering the period 12-22 March, were paid out.

Those who did not receive their rightful benefits yesterday and whose application is processed by noon today will be paid tomorrow.

As of this morning, 1,776 people were registered in the coronavirus supplement system, 999 women and 777 men.
