The number of people claiming the Pandemic Unemployment Payment has fallen by 32,800.
According to the Department of Social Protection, 498,700 people will receive the payment tomorrow.
Since last week’s payment, 30,000 people have closed their claim.
Just under 18,000 people will get their final payment tomorrow.
Minister for Social Protection, Regina Doherty says "These statistics published today are clear evidence that many businesses are returning slowly but surely especially in the Construction, Manufacturing and Wholesale and Retail industries throughout the country."
"Already we are seeing early but healthy signs of the economy beginning to recover as workplaces and society continue to re-open from the Covid-19 pandemic, which is a welcome and positive signal for everyone."
Meanwhile, there are now 61,800 employers availing of the covid-19 wage subsidy scheme.
410,000 employees are currently being supported by this scheme.
