The 4th supplementary budget (additional budget), which the opposition parties agreed today (22), selected the communication expenses set for support for all citizens as '16-34 years old and 65 years old' and limited to preschool children and elementary school students. It contains the contents of expanding the special care support fund to middle school students.

We have decided to expand the scope of free influenza vaccinations and provide subsidies not only to private taxi drivers but also to corporate taxi drivers.

We also provide new desired funds for small businesses of up to 2 million won to the entertainment industry and Collate.

The ruling and opposition parties are scheduled to vote tonight on the 4th supplementary bill revising these details.

Details of the application will be confirmed with the passage of the 4th supplementary bill.

● One million won for small business owners with reduced sales…

Including corporate taxis,

the area where the 4th supplementary fund is most invested is for small business owners and self-employed people who have suffered damage from social distancing measures.

That's about half of the total amount paid.

This is to support the contraction of business due to closing of business, shortening of business, or refraining from going out by the public through a subsidy called the New Hope Fund.

After the re-proliferation of Corona 19, 1 million won is basically paid to general industries with annual sales of 400 million won or less, which have decreased by even one won.

At this time, corporate taxi drivers are also included.

Initially, only private taxis were considered as small business owners, and if income decreased, subsidies were to be provided, but corporate taxi drivers also decided to give subsidies.

However, there is a high possibility that the support fund will be in a different form than the new desired fund.

● Up to 2 million won in the prohibited collective business...

Including entertainment pubs and collages

, we give 1.5 million won

to'restricted group

businesses', such as restaurants and coffee specialty stores, which are subject to business hours, and 2 million won to'prohibited businesses' such as PC rooms, academies, and reading rooms.

Restricted collective business and prohibited collective business are paid regardless of the amount of sales and whether or not the sales decrease.

Some changes took place in the course of discussions at the National Assembly regarding the sectors that do not support new funding.

Among the 12 high-risk facilities that were initially suspended due to a collective prohibition order, the government excluded entertainment pubs and Collatec from the support, but according to the agreement of the opposition parties, entertainment pubs and Collatec were able to receive subsidies.

This means that we will support businesses that are prohibited from collectively cooperating with the government's quarantine policy.

High-risk facilities such as PC cafes, indoor group exercise facilities, and singing practice grounds, which were suspended due to the 2nd stage of national social distancing on the 23rd of last month, and indoor sports facilities, reading rooms, which were suspended due to reinforcement measures for quarantine in the metropolitan area on the 30th of last month. Schools (10 or more) are subject to the prohibition of gathering.

Group restricted businesses include general restaurants, rest restaurants, bakeries, and franchise-type coffee shops in the metropolitan area, which were restricted business hours due to strengthening measures for quarantine in the metropolitan area on the 30th of last month.

A 500,000 won incentive is provided to small business owners who have closed their business.

● Emergency subsidies for special workers, etc. 500,000 to 1.5 million won

Secondary emergency employment stabilization subsidy of 5 to 1.5 million won is provided to specially employed workers and freelancers whose income has decreased due to the re-proliferation of Corona 19.

500,000 people who received the first subsidy (1.5 million won) will receive an additional 500,000 won before Chuseok without a separate review, and 1.5 million won (500,000 won × 3 months) for new 200,000 people whose income has decreased during this re-proliferation period. To pay.

The underprivileged class refers to specialized workers and freelancers such as school teachers, school instructors, sports instructors, door-to-door salespeople, school bus drivers, door-to-door salespeople, and caregivers.

Special job search support of 500,000 won is given to 200,000 young people (18 to 34 years old) who have difficulty in finding employment.

● Up to KRW 1 million for at-risk households with four or more safety

nets We expand the safety

net for at-

risk households.

We operate an emergency livelihood support program for households who are at risk of living due to unemployment or closure of business.

By easing the conditions compared to the existing emergency welfare system, a maximum of 1 million won (400,000 won for one person, 600,000 won for 2 people, 800,000 won for 3 people) is temporarily paid to households with 4 or more people.

● 200,000 won for preschool and elementary school students, and 150,000 won

for junior high school students. In order to reduce the burden of care for parents due to school and daycare closings and closures, we provide emergency care and learning support funds to households with children under junior high school age.

For a total of 5.32 million children, including 2.25 million preschoolers and 2.8 million elementary school students (including alternative schools and homeschooling), a special child care subsidy of 200,000 won per person is provided.

Students of middle school age (13-15 years old) receive a non-face-to-face learning support fund of 150,000 won per person.

In the beginning, the government formulated a supplementary plan with the content of giving subsidies only to elementary school students, but in the course of discussions at the National Assembly, the target was expanded to middle school students.

However, the difference is 200,000 won per person for elementary school students and 150,000 won per person for middle school students.

● 20,000 won for telecommunication fees for those aged 16-34 and 65 or older, 20,000 won for telecommunication fees

(mobile phone charges) are provided for citizens aged 16-34 and over 65.

This is a discounted rate for this month that is charged next month.

If the telecommunications service provider reduces the fee by 20,000 won for the age group subscribers without a separate application process, the government will compensate for this with the budget.

Subscribers with multiple mobile phones can only receive support for one line, and foreigners are not eligible for support in principle.

Prepaid phones and low-cost phones are also available. If the monthly fee is less than KRW 20,000, the remaining support amount can be carried over to the next month to receive a flat rate of KRW 20,000.

Initially, the government included the contents of the 20,000 won support for the former national communication expenses, but in the course of discussions at the National Assembly, the targets of support were reduced to those aged 16-34 and over 65.

The purpose of this is to consider providing non-face-to-face learning support for junior high school students, and to provide communication expenses to youths of the age of high school students, and to support communication expenses to young and elderly people with relatively low incomes.

● Securing corona vaccine for 20% of the people…


decided to use KRW 56.2 billion of the budget saved for screening communication expenses for

free influenza vaccinations for vulnerable groups to

secure the quantity of Corona 19 vaccines for 20% of the population (1.37 million people).

Free influenza vaccinations are also provided for 1.05 million vulnerable groups, including 700,000 medical benefit recipients and 350,000 people receiving disability pension benefits.

In addition, in order to compensate for the hard work of medical personnel who have been in the front line of responding to Corona 19 and support recharging, we will also provide support for counseling healing and educational training expenses.

We plan to reinforce counseling facilities to protect at-risk children in blind spots, strengthen psychological treatment infrastructure, and deploy child protection personnel early.

● Subsidies can

be paid as early as the second half of this week The principal is expected to start paying as early as the second half of this week.

The government plans to send notices to the targets of various subsidies before and after the passage of the 4th supplementary bill to the National Assembly.

Eligible candidates only need to apply online without additional supporting documents.

It is likely that it will be a method of collecting online applicants roughly around this weekend and paying them first.

Assistance for caring for preschool children (infants) and families of elementary school students, as well as emergency employment security support for special high school and freelancers, etc., can be paid from the second half of this week.

New desired funds for small business owners are paid on the 28th, and youth support is paid on the 29th.

The deadline for the 1st application is tight, so you must apply early to receive the support fund before Chuseok.
