Covid-19 Pandemic Unemployment Payment
Unfortunately, due to a technical problem, arrears did not issue to the person concerned on the date previously advised. According to my officials arrears totalling €8,057 for the period 03/04/2020 to 05/11/2020 will issue to the nominated bank account of the person concerned by Tuesday of next week.
The Christmas Bonus payment of €203 will also issue to the person concerned with his weekly payment next Tuesday, 22/12/2020.
I trust this clarifies the matter.
