Today, the Minister of Finance, Siniša Mali, confirmed that this morning the payment of the first 30 euros in dinar equivalent for 143.313 users of financial social assistance and for 9.500 persons deprived of liberty began.

"We are aware that the help is most needed by our oldest citizens and users of financial social assistance. They did not apply for this state assistance, but the money is directly paid on their accounts. Thus, pensioners received the first 30 euros yesterday, and today the money will be on the accounts to all social assistance beneficiaries and persons deprived of their liberty", he said.

Mali reminded that about one million and 700 thousand pensioners in Serbia can expect a payment of 50 euros in September, and another 30 euros in November.

"I have mentioned many times that consumption is very important for us. Everything we give to our citizens is largely returned to the budget, people spend, buy products. After last year's support in the amount of 100 euros, the result was visible, because we are in the greatest economic crises ever, had a very small decline in economic activity.

In Serbia, factories were not closed and jobs were not closed, as in some significantly more developed economies than ours," the minister explained. In the second half of May, Serbs in Kosovo and Metohija, including children, can expect a payment of 100 euros, and the unemployed in the southern province will be paid 200 euros each.

The unemployed in the rest of Serbia will receive assistance of 60 euros in June.

Pensioners were the first to receive money from the third aid package. Yesterday, 30 euros in dinar equivalent were paid into the accounts of 1.635.133 pensioners.

"Next Wednesday, on May 12, we will start paying 30 euros each to other citizens who applied for 30 plus 30 euros through the portal of the Treasury Administration or through the call center. So far, 3.450 have applied", stated the Minister of Finance Siniša Mali yesterday. Applications for help of 30 plus 30 euros started on April 28, and will last until May 15. It will be paid in two installments - the first in May 2021 and the second in November 2021.
