Some social welfare payments delayed by one day

Due to a once off processing issue, social welfare payments which are made by Electronic Funds Transfer to a person’s nominated bank account will be credited one day later than normal. The Department of Social Protection very much regrets this delay and apologises for any inconvenience caused to customers.

This means that approximately 32,700 customers, who would normally get their payment today, Tuesday 16th July 2013, will not receive their payment until tomorrow, Wednesday 17th July. The payments involved are:

  • Illness Benefit
  • Domiciliary Care Allowance
  • Jobseekers Benefit and Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • Occupational Injuries Benefit
  • Partial Capacity Benefit
  • Farm Assist
  • Back to Work Allowance
  • Supplementary Welfare Allowance
  • Back to School Clothing and Footwear Allowance
  • Family Income Supplement
  • Back to Education Allowance
  • One Parent Family Payment
  • JobBridge
  • Pre-Retirement Allowance
  • Maternity Benefit

Payments will be in customer bank accounts by 8.00 a.m. tomorrow morning or earlier. The Department is satisfied that no other payments are affected.
