Luanda – The Economic and Social Council (CES) wants to see defined a policy for Unemployment Benefits aimed at people that contributed at least 12 months for Social Security and lost their jobs, as well as for young students.

This intention appears in a set of proposals listed by this organ (CES) to be submitted, in the next days, to the President of the Republic, João Lourenço, with the purpose of attenuating, allegedly, the suffering of these social groups, giving them purchasing power, improving their socio-economic conditions and the quality of life.

In order to ensure the reliability of the process and destination of the resources, biometric control and the database of the National Institute of Social Security (INSS) and Identification of the Ministry of Youth at the job centres will be used, for the specific case of citizens who ended up unemployed, in a first phase.

According to the “Memorandum of Proposals of the Economic and Social Council”, to which ANGOP had access this Thursday, the students to benefit from that allowance (unspecified academic degree) will be equally monitored through a control base and through a commitment binding the Ministry of Education and the education institutions.
