The Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection is making the necessary preparations to ensure that there will be no disruption to welfare payments.
GSRMA Members currently in receipt of a welfare payment will continue to receive this payment in accordance with their current entitlements if they are required to self-isolate or are diagnosed with Covid-19. There is no need for the people concerned to take any action.
Payments to people who collect their payments in person at post offices but, due to illness or self-isolation, are unable to do so on the due date, will be held over until they can next attend a post office.
Alternative Payment arrangements (for example, transfer into a bank account, collection by an agent) are also available and can be agreed, on request, with any person who is affected by Covid-19.
