Change my payment method
In line with the latest HSE and WHO advice around Social Distancing in order to fight the spread of the COVID-19 virus the Department has taken the decision to facilitate getting your payment directly into a Bank account. This will mean no longer having to pick up your payment in person in a post office.
What payment method can I change
If you are currently being paid a social welfare payment into a post office you can now request that the payment will be paid directly into a financial institution instead e.g Bank or Credit Union
If you are currently already being paid into a bank you can also change that bank account for a new one.
What do I need?
MyGovID Verified Account
