Covid-19 Pandemic Unemployment Payment
COVID-19 Pandemic Unemployment Payment is a new social welfare payment of €350 a week for employees and self-employed people who have lost all of their employment due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.
You can apply for the payment if you are aged between 18 and 66 and have lost all of your employment due to the coronavirus restrictions. Students, non-EEA nationals and part-time workers can apply for the payment.
You should apply online at MyWelfare.ie. This is the quickest way to apply.
If you have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or have been told to self-isolate by your GP, you can apply for Illness Benefit.
