    From June 24, the government will provide emergency living support to 2.27 million low-income households. According to the Ministry of Health and Welfare, this emergency living support for the low-income class will be provided to about ▲ 1.79 million households of national basic livelihood guarantees, and ▲ 480,000 single-parent households and lower-income families receiving support for child support. Due to the low income, it is expected that multicultural families registered as recipients of national basic livelihood guarantees and as low-income family will also be able to benefit. A maximum of 400,000 won will be provided to single-person households receiving livelihood and medical benefits, △ 650,000 won for two people, △ 830,000 won for three people, △ 1 million won for four people, △ 1.16 million won for five people, △ 1.31 million won for six people, and  △1.45 million won for seven-person households. For households receiving housing/educational benefits, the second-highest class by law, and single-parent families: △single-person households: 300,000 won △2 people 490,000 won △3 people 620,000 won △4 people 750,000 won △5 people 870,000 won △6 people 980,000 won △7-person households 109 receive a million-dollar grant. If you are eligible for the emergency living support, you can visit an eup, myeon, or dong community center and receive a prepaid card or a local currency card (excluding paper) without making a separate application. The emergency living support is to be given once this year, and the support must be used all within this year. It is paid in the form of a card for limited use in some industries and for follow-up management, but it is issued as a subsidy (cash) to the beneficiaries of livelihood security facilities.

  • Newly changed infectious disease prevention and control aid and loss compensation, information on emergency living subsidy, etc.
    The government will provide infectious disease prevention and control aid from a minimum of 6 million won to a maximum of 10 million won to small business owners who have accumulated damage due to infectious disease prevention and control measures such as continuous business restrictions and gathering bans. On May 29, the National Assembly passed an additional supplementary budget of 62 trillion won for small business owners’ infectious disease prevention and control aid and loss compensation. Infectious disease prevention and control aid and compensation for loss are different. Infectious disease prevention and control aid  The target of this infectious disease prevention and control aid is small business owners, small enterprises, and medium-sized enterprises with sales of 1 to 5 billion won. The government pays a minimum of 6 million won to a maximum of 10 million won in infectious disease prevention and control aid for each company in consideration of the size of sales and the level of decline in sales. Among those eligible for support, about 50 industries, such as the travel industry and wedding venues, whose annual sales have decreased by more than 40% due to the application of “social distancing” measures, are classified as “upward-supported industries” and receive at least 7 million won in infectious disease prevention and control aid for losses. For example, a company with annual sales of less than 200 million won receives 6 million won as compensation for losses, but for businesses with upward support such as sports centers and performance halls receives 7 million won, which is 1 million won more. In order to receive the highest amount of 10 million won, it must be an upward- supported industry such as travel and air transportation, with annual sales of 400 million won or more, and a decrease in sales of 60% or more. This infectious disease prevention and control aid is paid separately from the previous 1st and 2nd infectious disease prevention and control subsidies. Small business owners who received 4 million won in the first and second infectious disease prevention and control subsidies can also receive an additional 10 million won in infectious disease prevention and control aid for losses this time. Since the government determines the rate of decrease in sales by using the National Tax Service database (DB), there is no need to separately submit document from the target companies. The time to pay infectious disease prevention and control aid for loss is scheduled to inform small business owners and the self-employed about the procedure for applying for infectious disease prevention and control aid by around May 30 at the earliest. Loss compensation Compensation for loss is compensation given to those who have suffered damage as a result of cooperation with the government's infectious disease prevention and control measures. This budget is set at 1.6 trillion won. This is much less than the infectious disease prevention and control aid. The government decided to raise the loss compensation correction rate from 90% to 100% from the first quarter of this year in order to “completely compensate” small business owners. In addition, the lower limit for quarterly loss compensation has been raised from 500,000 won to 1 million won. The scope of compensation for losses has also been expanded to include medium-sized enterprises with annual sales of 3 billion won or less. However, it is expected that it will take about a month for the payment to start after receiving the applications from those concerned. Emergency living support, etc. The emergency living support will be paid up to 1 million won to 2.27 million low-income households, and it is expected to receive it around July, which each local government will be done preparing. 700,000 freelancers from special high schools such as door-to-door salespeople and surrogate drivers and 30,000 cultural artists were originally supposed to receive 1 million won, but this was increased to 2 million won during the National Assembly discussion. The support for 160,000 corporate taxi and chartered bus drivers also increased from 2 million won to 3 million won. In this case as well, a separate application is required, so it is expected to be paid after the preparation period of 2 months for cultural artists and 1 month for other occupations.

In response, the Korean Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism restarted the “Korea Accommodation Daejeon” to comfort the people exhausted from Corona and help the tourism industry who is experiencing a crisis. This event is to provide accommodation discount vouchers that offer a discount of 20,000 to 30,000 won when booking domestic accommodations through 49 online travel agencies. In addition to discount vouchers, special promotions are also conducted by travel agency channels, allowing you to purchase accommodation tickets at a lower cost than ever before. We have summarized how to use the accommodation discount voucher, various benefits, and precautions. ◆ How to use it? Accommodation discount vouchers will be issued once per person until May 8, and will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis until 1 million are exhausted. The validity period is from 10 am to 7 am the next day, so be careful as the voucher will automatically expire if you do not use it within time or cancel your reservation. Only non-users can receive a reissue from 10 am if there are still vouchers, but it is recommended to use the voucher on the same day as it is highly likely to run out. During the stay period, you can stay until June 6 if you receive a voucher within the issuance period of the accommodation discount voucher and make a reservation. The discount range is 30,000 won if the accommodation cost exceeds 70,000 won and 20,000 won if the accommodation cost is less than 70,000 won. ◆ Where can I get it? Accommodation facilities where discount vouchers can be used include hotels, condos, resorts, pensions, rural guest houses, and motels in Korea. However, discount vouchers cannot be used for unregistered accommodation facilities and rental rooms. Discount vouchers are available through 40 channels of 49 online travel agencies, including Gmarket, A Auction, HotelNJoy, Wemakeprice, Interpark, and Yanolja. In addition to discount vouchers, each channel has special promotions such as additional discounts and prizes for reservations made at its own mall. For example, in the case of M travel agency, if you download a voucher for 20,000 to 30,000 won for accommodation, an additional voucher pack worth 75,000 won is automatically paid immediately. If you are planning multiple trips during the Accommodation Daejeon period or want to use multiple accommodations, you can use the 75,000 won voucher pack after using the Accommodation Daejeon coupon.
