Covid-19 pandemic has changed a lot of aspects in our life. The culture of helping each other is one of them. The Jakarta Provincial Government realizes the importance of working through this pandemic together. Therefore, five assistance programs are created to help people who are affected by Covid-19 in Jakarta.

Bantuan Sosial Tunai: Helping Families to Fulfill Their Basic Needs

Bantuan Sosial Tunai (BST) is a social assistance given to families who are affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, so they could fulfill their basic needs. This program is the continuation program of Bansos PSBB 2020 and is being distributed from January to April 2021 with source of funding from DKI Jakarta Regional Budget. 

The assistance given is in the form of cash amounting to Rp300.00 rupiahs per month to each family. After that, the recipients of BST will be receiving Bank DKI savings book and ATM card which can be used to retrieve their BST funds.

If you have ever been registered as the recipient of Bansos PSBB 2020, automatically you are registered as the recipient of BST. To check your status, you can visit corona.jakarta.go.idand insert your family registers number on the search box. You can also check it through JAKI app on the “Jakarta Tanggap Covid-19” menu in the Informasi Bansos feature.
