2. Indonesia to Disburse Second Phase of Cash Transfers for Workers

The Indonesian government through the Ministry of Manpower will soon give the second phase of cash transfers (BLT) to workers whose monthly salary is below five million rupiahs ($342) in the first week of November, a top official said on Tuesday, November 3.

“We plan to disburse the second phase of cash transfers in the first week of November,” said Minister of Manpower Ida Fauziyah in a message broadcast via the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) YouTube Channel.

It means that the aid will begin to be disbursed in stages no later than Saturday, November 7, she added.

This year, the government has scheduled the disbursement of 600,000 rupiahs ($41) to some 15.7 million workers whose monthly salary is below five million rupiahs ($342) and are registered with the Workers Social Security Agency (BPJS Ketenagakerjaan).

Each eligible worker receives the monthly assistance over four months or 2.4 million rupiahs ($164) in total. However, the aid will be disbursed in two phases so that each recipient will receive 1.2 million rupiahs ($82) in each phase.

The government has allocated 37.7 trillion rupiahs ($2.5 billion) from the state budget for the program during the Covid-19 pandemic.
