Ministry advises of 'minor' delay in payment of Social Welfare cheques

The Ministry of Social Development and Family Services is advising recipients of Social Welfare Grants that there will be a minor delay in payments via cheques only for the month of April.

These include Senior Citizens' Pension, Disability and Public Assistance grants.

In a statement on Friday, the Ministry said this follows changes in working arrangements amongst its stakeholders.

As a result, it said cheques will be delivered by TTPOST from April 1.

The Ministry noted that persons on direct deposit are not affected and will be able to receive their funding directly in their bank accounts, as customary.
