Welfare found Master’s, Doctorate degrees for “Poor People” registered

Approximately 6,600 people who registered for state welfare (which is, of course, sponsored by the taxpayers), were surprisingly found to have master’s and even doctorate degrees, leading to the Finance Ministry to reconsider the qualifications of those eligible for the benefits.

In the new program granting citizens earning less than THB30,000 per year a monthly payment to cover necessities, the government has found that among the 14 million people registered, thousands of them are very educated — 6,000 people have master’s degrees and 600 hold doctorate degrees.Finance Minister Apisak Tantivorawong said that they’ll re-verify the qualifications of those eligible for the state welfare’s and opt for a re-screening.
