Breaking Pandemic payment to be extended until April 2021

The Pandemic Unemployment Payment is to be extended until April but will be gradually reduced to €203 per week over that period based on the pre-pandemic earnings of the claimant.

The total cost of extending the PUP scheme from now until April is estimated at €2.24 billion - around €380 million more than would have been paid out if the PUP claimants were on the standard Jobseekers' Allowance.
