Social Welfare due Monday, available for collection today

With Post Offices closed on Monday, the Department of Social Welfare has made payments due on Monday, available for collection from today as Monday is a bank holiday.

Pensioners, jobseekers, widows and carers allowances’ who receive their payment on a Monday will all be able to pick up next week’s payment at Post Offices around the country, today.

Those who receive their payments directly to a bank account each Monday will also be paid today.

Recipients will have to wait until March 2017 for the increases passed in the recent Budget to kick in.


Further information on social welfare payment dates can be found on the Department of Social Protection website
