The Post Office is a major partner of the Department of Social Protection. You can collect your Social Welfare payment at any of our Post Offices nationwide. When you collect your welfare payment at your post office you do not incur any charges.
How does it work?
If you wish to have your Social Welfare payments paid to you through the Post Office you must apply directly to the Department of Social Protection. You can designate any one of our network of Post Offices as your office of payment. Even if you currently receive your welfare payments in another way (e.g. bank account) you can apply to have your payments paid (without charges) at your local Post Office. Just drop in today and ask for more details.

- Families and children
