President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nayhan announced a package of measures to help low-income Emirati families.

The social support budget has been doubled from AED 14 billion to AED 28 billion and will include allowances to help pay for food, fuel, electricity, water, and housing as well as bring in measures to help out those unemployed above the age of 45.

Families on incomes of less than AED 25,000 will qualify for payments.

Benefits will also be paid to job-seekers regardless of age for a period of six months.

Support will also be offered for students and top high school pupils to encourage them to enroll in further education.
