An Post is introducing staggered starting times for postal delivery staff based at local postal delivery offices across the country. This will result in later mails and parcels deliveries for some customers starting today, Monday 23rd March.. Social distancing measures are also in place across An Post’s mails and parcels sorting centres, post offices and headquarters operations.
Customers in receipt of Department of Employment Affairs & Social Protection welfare payments are to receive two-week payments starting either today, March 23rd, or next Monday March 30th.
A two-week payment will be made this week to most Social Welfare payment customers with the exception of those in receipt of Jobseeker and Working Family payments, Supplementary Welfare Allowance, One Parent Family Payment and Rent Supplement . These customers will receive their regular payment this week and the two-week payment from next week, starting March 30th.
All DEASP payments will be held at the post office for 90 days to enable customers to plan post office and shopping visits when best suits them.
Customers are asked to be aware of social distancing at post offices.
