14,225 PUP Payments Due To Wicklow Recipients This Week

460,000 people will receive the pandemic unemployment this week, the highest figure recorded since June.

The number of payments being issued this week marks a rise of almost 62,000 since last Tuesday.

14,225 are due to receive the payment in Wicklow, a rise from 12,100 at the beginning of last week.  

The increase includes just over 24,000 construction workers who have lost their jobs as a result of the new covid-19 restrictions.

Meanwhile, the number of people in receipt of Enhanced Illness Benefit has climbed to more than 10,400, which is over 4,000 more than last week.
