The DOLE reports a total of Php 110.415 million released as financial support for 22,083 workers in areas affected by Alert Level 3 and higher through the Department’s COVID-19 Adjustment Measures Program (CAMP). 16,011 or 72% of program beneficiaries have already claimed their one-time cash assistance of Php 5,000.00 via money remittance centers or preferred banks.

Per guidelines of the pandemic-response program, establishments that underwent Temporary Closure or Permanent Closure during the implementation of Alert Level 3 or higher in their respective areas can submit applications for their affected employees through the DOLE online Establishment Reporting System (ERS) at Retrenched or temporarily laid-off individuals are also eligible to apply for the assistance through the portal.

As more areas nationwide are placed under lower Alert Levels, the Department expects claims for the benefit to slow down in the coming months. Nonetheless, CAMP3 will continue to provide financial support to affected workers and establishments in the event that Alert Level 3 is reimposed, as part of the Department’s efforts to extend assistance to the Filipino workforce amidst the pandemic.

The DOLE ERS remains open as the official portal for submission of CAMP3 applications. Applicants may also track the status of their application in the platform using their CAMP Reference Number.
