Social Welfare Payments will change to a single payment for two weeks
This is to encourage social distancing.
Some customers will receive a single payment for two weeks from 23 March. Some customers will receive a single payment for two weeks from 30 March.
This will reduce the amount of time people attend post offices and banks.
All payments will be paid in a single payment every two weeks: payments into bank accounts, post offices and by cheque.
This is not a bonus payment.
