  1. 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.

    • Payments due into your account from other Banks on Tuesday 17 March 2020 may not be credited to your account until Wednesday 18 March 2020.
      Some banks might get payments today.

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

  3. 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
