Payout of wage subsidy assistance to begin Monday: Department of Manpower

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – The Ministry of Manpower said the process for disbursement of Wage Subsidy Assistance (BSU) 2022 for 4.36 million people will begin on Monday, September 12, 2022.

Inshallah (God willing), the BSU fund of Rp 600,000 (per beneficiary) can be withdrawn in stages from next Monday according to the operations of the Himbara banks (public banks). I repeat that this first phase (disbursement) is for beneficiaries of BSU, who already have accounts in Himbara banks,” noted the Secretary General of the Ministry of Manpower Anwar Sanusi in a written statement received on Friday. .

Sanusi noted that on Friday evening, the ministry processed the disbursement of the first phase of wage subsidy assistance for 4.36 million workers or laborers, with a budget of 2.61 trillion rupees.

“The fund was passed on to the Himbara banks, as distributing banks, through the KPPN (the State Treasury Service Bureau) for further distribution to the beneficiaries of the first phase (disbursement) of the BSU,” he explained.

Previously, the Ministry of Manpower received data of 5.09 million potential beneficiaries of the BSU 2022 from the Labor Social Security Agency (BPJS Ketenagakerjaan). The Ministry then verified and matched the data of potential beneficiaries for the first phase of disbursement before they were designated as beneficiaries of BSU 2022.

He said that a process of verification, validation and matching of data is necessary in accordance with the criteria set out in the Minister of Manpower Regulation on BSU 2022 with the aim of maintaining accuracy and responsibility for goals.

After the process, no less than 4.36 million workers were selected as beneficiaries of the first disbursement phase of the BSU 2022.

“We understand that BSU 2022 is highly anticipated by workers/workers. However, in addition to being fast, we must also maintain the right-to-target and accountability principles of this program. I thank workers/workers, who have been patient in waiting for the disbursement of BSU 2022,” Sanusi remarked.
