  1. Normally they send payments out early on a bank holiday. I can only assume they haven’t done it this year or there is a delay somewhere. Hopefully it will be there tomorrow before noon.

    Maybe all this virus stuff means they are concentrating on other things. It should be there tomorrow.

  3. I’m on JSB ( casual dockets ) and I’m in the same boat as you . Checked my BOI online this morn . Hopefully tmrw

  4. Well why would there put it up on money guide that the payment that go into the bank Tuesday night will be there Monday night I am freaking out here

    • The normal procedure with the Dept of Social Protection is to pay it early. (apart from casual jobseekers) . Not sure why it didn’t happen for some people this year.

    I didn’t realise you could have your job seekers allowance paid into your bank account.

    I’m worried I’ll get the virus and be unable to collect the job seeks allowance from the post office.

    • Unfortunately nothing today either. I’m sending a ‘strongly worded letter’ to the office, asking for last week’s payment to be included with the forthcoming one. Seeing as how the phone is effectively dead, and the office I presume is in some kind of meltdown, I’m not sure this letter will make any difference. Thats for the advice. D

  6. bank holiday yesterday – so I would expect payments to be there by 12 noon today

  7. Gone 12 and still no payment in for casual workers. BOI I’m with. Anyone else in position?

    • I’m with PTSb getting illness benefit. And nothing yet. Usually v prompt every Tuesday.

  8. I’d be surprised if the payment was that quick. They are VERY busy . Keep checking –
