COVID 19 Social Support Measures warning against fraudulent practices
The Ministry of Social Development and Family Services wishes to advise all persons seeking assistance through the COVID-19 SOCIAL SUPPORT MEASURES to desist from participating in any fraudulent activities related to the access of the measures. This relates to both the employee and the employer.
Persons who are caught declaring information, which is deemed false, will be reported to the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service and will face the full penalty of the law once charged.
The Ministry of Social Development and Family Services wishes to state that it has not given authority to any persons who are not staff of the Ministry to assist persons in filling out application forms. Any person claiming that they are able to fast track the processing of applications is making a false statement. Members of the public are asked to be guided accordingly.
