If you have lost your job or are laid off temporarily, without pay, due to COVID-19, whether you are an employee or if you are self-employed, you can apply for the COVID-19 Pandemic Unemployment Payment. This new payment delivers income support to the unemployed (be they self-employed or employees).


  1. Fill out the attached COVID UP form. In the “Employer name, address, phone no” section write down “Self-employed as ….”  To make the process quicker, add a letter stating your Self Employment details: the nature of your business, how your business was affected by COVID-19 (closed/reduced hours & pay / etc), the date you got income the last time, details of any other income you might have.
  • If your spouse/partner continues working, add their recent payslip.
  • If you don’t hold a Public Services Card, add a proof of ID (copy of your passport or Drivers Licence) and a most recent utility bill for proof of address.


  1. Post the documents out to: Freepost, PO Box 12896, Dublin 1 or your Local INTREO Centre.


  • The scheme will operate for 12 weeks with a rate of €350.00 per week and It will be paid into your bank account every Tuesday once your application is processed.


  1. After sending out COVID Unemployment forms, you are advised to apply for Jobseeker’s Benefit (Short time Work Support). Both UP1 & UP14 forms (below) must be submitted. If you are granted the Jobseekers Payment, your COVID Payment will stop.


  • Please note that The Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection said it has experienced unprecedented demand for income supports since 13 March, equivalent to ten months of normal claims in just ten working days. There might be delays. In case off additional information required in relation to your claim, you will be contacted directly.
