Fake News: Labour & Social Security Ministry Announces List of Persons To Receive Grants

 

The Ministry of Labour & Social Security, is dismissing as ‘Fake News’ a Social Media posting in circulation suggesting that there is a list of names of persons announced by the Ministry, who will receive ‘Government Grants’, valued at JA$150,000 to persons who have worked during the period 2010 to 2021.

There is no truth to this information. It is an internet scam.

Screenshot images with associated website links, bearing the Ministry’s branding and the details surround such grants, being propagated, is also false.

Members of the public are being asked to ignore any such communication received electronically or otherwise and to desist from sharing this information. The Ministry is encouraging persons to check and verify that any  information about its services is authentic before taking any action.

To learn more about eligibility or to apply for any of the grants offered under the Ministry of Labour & Social Security’s Social Programmes, contact the Public Relations Unit: (876) 967-5484, or send an email to: prunit@mlss.gov.jm or visit our website: www.mlss.gov.jm
