At today’s presentation, the Minister of Finance Ivane Machavariani spoke about the details of the plan on social assistance.
“All hired employees who lost their jobs, income during the crisis after the declaration of the state of emergency, will receive assistance from the state in the amount of 1200 GEL over a period of six months. This means that these people will receive 200 GEL per month” – Minister said.
As he noted, in addition, in addition, all persons who will retain their jobs, and all the companies that will retain jobs will receive a full subsidy of salary payment of up to 750 GEL for the period of six months in terms of income tax payments.
At the same time, he said, it is very important that social assistance also applies to the self-employees. As he noted, social assistance services will be involved in the identification of such people.
According to Machavariani, the plan includes assistance for socially vulnerable groups.
“The state also helps socially vulnerable families, including whose social rating score is from 65,000 points to 100,000. We will help such families in the amount of 600 GEL for six months. In addition, families whose social rating score is between 0 and 100,000 points and have 3 or more children under the age of 16, which means large families, will also be assisted by the state in the amount of 600 GEL for six months”, – he said.
