  1. Is that saying people who collect jobseekers payments can collect it this Friday instead of Monday?

  2. I just asked the post office and they said jobseekers can’t get they’re money until Monday? But why does this day different? Very misleading

    • Maybe your local Post Office is wrong?

  3. Yeah due Tuesday but can be collected Monday and early for bank holidays but I think we all got confused. Thanks for info!!
