Over 1.2 million labourers affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in Hanoi have received financial support from the municipal unemployment insurance fund, reaching 74.3 percent of the total employees eligible for the support.

Hanoi’s social security agency also announced a reduction in contributions of employers to the city’s unemployment insurance fund for 84,384 units with an initial amount of more than 367 billion VND.

According to Vice Director of the Hanoi’s social security agency Vu Duc Thuat, the city’s insurance offices are working hard to quickly approve records and accelerate payments for labourers.

Apart from delivering support to employees, Hanoi’s social security agency has also paid attention to popularizing Resolution No.116/NQ-CP of the Government through the mass media, radio stations of communes, wards and towns, and social networks so that employers and labourers know about their benefits and relevant procedures, he said./.
