Important information in relation to payments.

Minister Paschal Donohoe and Minister Regina Doherty announces the extension of Temporary Wage Subsidy Scheme and the extension of the Pandemic Unemployment Payment until at least Phase 5 of the Roadmap for Re-opening Society and Business – currently scheduled for August 2020.

The Temporary Wage Subsidy Scheme (TWSS) was introduced on 26th March to support the viability of firms and preserve the relationship between the employer and employee, insofar as is possible, by subsidising a portion of the employer wage bill in circumstances where the employer’s business has been negatively impacted by the restrictions that have had to be introduced to stop the spread of the #COVID19 virus.

The changes to the Pandemic Unemployment Payment include:

Extending the availability of the Pandemic Unemployment Payment (PUP) from 9th June until Phase 5 of the Roadmap for Re-opening Society and Business (currently scheduled to begin on 10th August);
The introduction, from Phase 3 of the Roadmap (29th June), of a two level payment structure to link the Pandemic Unemployment Payment level to prior earnings;
The extension, until Phase 5 of the Roadmap, of the waiver of waiting days on jobseekers payments and the increased rate of payment for Qualified Adults on jobseeker claims;
The extension, until Phase 5 of the Roadmap, of the current arrangements with respect to the waiver of waiting days and the payment of an enhanced rate of Illness Benefit to people affected by Covid-19.
