PUP cuts take effect today
Cuts to the Pandemic Unemployment Payment take effect from today.
The top two rates drop by €50, while people receiving €250 per week will now get the normal jobseeker’s rate.
The move is part of the government’s plan to phase out the payment by early next year.
Today’s changes will be noticeable from September 14th.
Students are also receiving their final payments today under the scheme.
