During an interview broadcast on Algerian television, Tebboune said the payments to jobseekers aged 19 to 40 would begin in March 2022 to “preserve the dignity of young people.”

According to him, those who are eligible will be able to collect the payments of about $100 (about N57,000) a month as well as some medical benefits, while some taxes on consumer products will also be suspended until they find work.

Tebboune said the youth payments were part of the 2022 budget, adding that Algeria was the first country outside Europe to introduce such a benefit.
