Prime Minister, Gaston Browne, has clarified that a certain unemployment assistance funds form being circulated is not genuine.
” It is quite unfortunate, that during these unprecedented times, there are persons seeking to take advantage of our citizens. Please note, this fake unemployment assistance funds form is not genuine and is not affliliated with the Antigua and Barbuda Social Security Board or the Government of Antigua and Barbuda,” said Browne.
The Social Security Board also issued a statement which informed the public that an Unemployment benefit fund is not a service offered.
The benefits offered by the Social Security Board are: Sickness, Maternity, Invalidity, Age Pension, Survivor’s Pension and Funeral Grant.
