AMMAN — Media spokesperson for the Social Security Corporation (SSC), Shaman Al-Majali, explained the reasoning for his institution demanding its beneficiaries to repay a JD500 advance they received during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Al-Ghad News.اضافة اعلان

The amount was paid in three installments to beneficiaries during the pandemic, when many Jordanians lost income as a result of stringent lockdowns which brought economic activity to a virtual standstill.

Majali explained that the SSC updated its application recently, adding new services. One of the additions is a page for “financial dues,” where subscribers saw the JD500.

He clarified that the amount is due for repayment when a person reaches the retirement age, then the amount must be paid either in full, or in installments. If installments, there will be an interest added to the basic amount.
