Department of Social Protection – payment arrangements for June Bank Holiday 2020
All Socal Welfare offices will be closed on Monday, 1st June 2020
Banks and Post Offices will also be closed on 1st June.
If your welfare or pension payment is due to be paid at a post office on Monday 1st June, you will be able to collect it early from Saturday 30th May . Note that all post offices will be closed on Monday 3rd June
All Welfare or pension payments made direct to bank accounts that are due on Monday 1st June will be paid instead on Friday 29th May.
If you normally get paid by cheque and that is due on Monday – it will be posted out a day earlier than usual so you may get it on Friday.(depending on your local postal service)
Child Benefit is due on Tue 2nd June – and should be in banks as normal on that date.
When an Irish bank Holiday coincides with an EU bank holiday on the first Monday of a month – the Child Benefit payments are processed early . But the 1st June is not an EU bank holiday – so Child Allowance should be paid as normal on June 2nd.
