You can apply for Temporary Relief Fund if you have met the following conditions:

  • Singapore Citizens or PRs aged 16 years and above

  • Loss of job or at least 30% of personal income due to COVID-19 (after 23 Jan 2020)

  • Prior gross monthly household income of ≤$10,000, or monthly per capita income of ≤$3,100

  • Not on ComCare assistance

Alternatively, you can apply for ComCare assitance.

The 2-4 weeks of closing down doesn't mean that you are not paid.

Companies are given 75% grant by government to keep their workers paid as usual.

If Liho is like most company, you will still be paid of your usual wages. Hence you would not be eligible for Temporary Relief fund too since you are getting your usual salary.
