China takes subsidies application online to help people with disabilities.
China has decided to move online the application for living allowance for the financially-challenged disabled population and nursing care subsidy for those living with severe disabilities, starting from May 15.
The new rule will alleviate the pressure of onsite visits for people living with disabilities, according to a statement jointly released by the Ministry of Civil Affairs and China Disabled Persons' Federation.
Starting from April 2021, qualified candidates can apply for the two types of subsidies in the most convenient government offices regardless of the location of their registered residence, according to the statement.
