The Pandemic Unemployment Payment for part time workers is going to be reduced by the government.
Cabinet Ministers will tomorrow extend the emergency payments for a number of months.
Those who were working full time but lost their jobs will remain on the 350 rate.
But Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has confirmed there will be a reduction for part time workers.
"It will be extended, for months, not weeks," he said.
"Nobody who was working full-time before the pandemic will see their unemployment payment cut. It will stay at €350 a week."
"Some people who were working part-time will see their payment reduced, but their weekly payment will still be more than they were earning before the pandemic," he addded."
