Bahamas: NIB minister explains unemployment payments

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — Minister of National Insurance Brensil Rolle yesterday sought to explain payments received by individuals on the government’s unemployment program.

Several people have expressed concerns that they received less than $100 in their latest payment.

But Rolle told Eyewitness News last night that this was an unexpected circumstance as a result of the government’s initial intention to end the 13-week unemployment program in January.

He explained that there were issues with week five and six of the program for some individuals that led to them not being paid.
