They are working to process claims as quickly as possible and say if there is any issues claimants will be contacted by Department representatives.

They were in customer’s bank accounts on Tuesday, March 24th.

The Dept. notes " Some payments did not go forward for various reasons. This is normal. For example some claims may not have met eligibility criteria.

Other payments may have been held back due to an error with an IBAN number or an inconsistency between PPSNs. "

The payment is available to those who lost their jobs suddenly due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and the self-employed.
