Almost one week after the application portal was launched to assist unemployed persons, the Government of Belize has already reached out to almost one thousand five hundred applicants.  A release from the Financial Task Force indicates that they have received fifty-nine thousand five hundred applications online with hard copies making up another total of applications sent in.  Those hard copies will be entered into the portal early next week, as soon as the proper protocols in relation to time and sanitization can be followed.  According to the release, payments to the 1,488 already approved applicants were sent to the Social Security Board this morning for immediate processing. The verification and approval processes are continuous and will proceed throughout the long weekend, as the next batch of approved applications is expected to be a much larger number.  The financial assistance will be $150.00 every two weeks for three months to persons who have been laid off as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. It also provides assistance of $100.00 every two weeks for three months to persons who were unemployed prior to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, and are now experiencing even more difficult circumstances. These latter persons will also be referred to the Ministry of Human Development for consideration for further assistance through the social programs operated by that Ministry. Persons who are employed, whether full or part-time or are on leave from their job, do not qualify for this program and should not apply.
