And local media in Algeria reported that Prime Minister Ayman bin Abdel Rahman signed an executive decree specifying the conditions, modalities and amount of the unemployment grant, and the obligations of its beneficiaries.
The unemployment grant announced by Tebboune is estimated at 13,000 Algerian dinars (about 82 euros), and it will be poured out starting in March, in addition to health coverage. This bonus will be calculated in the 2022 budget.
The unemployment rate in Algeria is about 15 percent. The minimum wage in Algeria is 20 thousand dinars (125 euros), and therefore this grant is equivalent to more than half of it.
A decree issued in the last issue of the Official Gazette stipulates that the applicant for the new scholarship must fulfill the following conditions:
Residence in Algeria.
Age between 19 and 40 years.
To be registered as a job applicant for the first time with the National Employment Agency, no less than 6 months ago.
He shall not have any income.
To justify his position towards national service.
Not be registered in an institution of higher education or vocational training.
He should not have benefited from public agencies to support the creation and expansion of activities and help with professional integration and social assistance.
That the husband does not have any income of whatever nature.
The Algerian government says that the grant is offered for a period of 6 months, renewable only once, and prisoners who have fulfilled their sentence and have no income, within the previous conditions, also benefit from it, with the exception of the condition of registration with the National Employment Agency for a period of no less than 0 months.
The beneficiaries of the government grant have a number of obligations, namely:
Apply to the National Employment Agency in his place of residence to renew his registration.
Responding to calls from the National Employment Agency.
Not to reject two job offers that match his qualifications.
Do not reject a configuration intended to improve its operability.
