Desmond Lee on COVID-19 Support Grant eligibility

(Updated: )

There is no requirement for applicants to be jobless for three full months to be eligible for the COVID-19 Support Grant (CSG). Social and Family Development Minister Desmond Lee said this in Parliament on Thursday (Jun 4), in reply to an MP’s questions. He said affected employees need not wait for three consecutive months without a job to apply. They are eligible for the CSG if they can provide supporting documents, such as a letter from their employer, to show that they will be affected for at least three consecutive months.
