Update from Government on benefit payments

Fri, 06 Dec 2019

The Treasury has confirmed benefits payments have been made with the exception of a small number of anomalies that are being dealt with.

Yesterday, the Government said an 'administrative issue' was behind the delay in payments.

A helpline number issued yesterday evening remains valid and any customers who have not received their payments and are in need of assistance should call Social Security on 686415.

Anyone who has suffered any financial penalties connected to this matter should also contact Social Security.

An investigation has been launched by the department to find out what happened.
