In total, the stimulus package will be given to 13.8 million eligible workers who are registered with the Workers Social Security Agency (BPJS Ketenagakerjaan). 

Nationally, the average monthly wage in Indonesia, according to 2019 data from the Indonesian Statistics Agency (BPS), is IDR2.83 million. College graduates, meanwhile, earn an average of IDR4.59 million per month.

The government hopes the stimulus package will boost spending and revive Indonesia’s ailing economy, which contracted for the first time since the aftermath of the Asian Financial Crisis more than 20 years ago. 

BPS yesterday announced that Indonesia’s GDP contracted 5.32 percent in the second quarter of 2020 — much deeper than the government’s estimate of 4.3 percent — amid the pandemic, putting Indonesia on course towards a recession.
