Temporary extra assistance for self employed professionals

Local government (municipalities) will implement a temporary assistance scheme designed by the government. Self employed professionals can receive additional livelihood support for three months by using an accelerated procedure.

This supplements the income to the social minimum and does not have to be repaid.

There is no asset or partner test in this temporary assistance scheme. Support under this temporary scheme is also possible in the form of a working capital loan at a reduced interest rate.
