The national portal provides eight services for employers and employees affected by COVID-19.

The services assist both groups in suspending contributions to the pension and survival benefit funds. They support workers to postpone their performance under labor contracts, take unpaid leave, or stop working.

The online services also target employees ending labor contracts but not eligible for unemployment benefits and employers wanting to borrow capital to pay for workers and production recovery.

In addition, the services cover the making of proposals for the extension of taxation payment deadlines for businesses and individuals.

According to the Administrative Procedure Control Agency at the Government Office, all procedures on the portal have been simplified to a minimum.
