Hey all, applied for JSB, was told it will take about a month to come through and that my collection day would be a Tuesday/Wednesday (don't know how they figured this as form wasn't even processed). Anyway, what do you know I have arranged to be in Dublin for something for a 3 days period (Tuesday to Thursday) in and around that time, and knowing my luck that will be my first payday.
My question is if all this comes to pass, do I have to collect the money on the specific day - I think I read somewhere you have 3 days including the first day to collect? So if they say Tuesday I have til Thursday or along those lines? I will be gone early on the first day and back late on the last meaning both Tuesday and Wednesday are right offs. What happens if I simply can't make that week to collect the first payment. I've read you fill out a form for them to explain why, which I can do, but does the letter usually come a bit in advance - as in If I was in Dublin on the Tuesday to Thursday, could it come Tuesday morning (when I'm gone) telling me to collect Wednesday?
Now this is probably needless worry as the first step is to get a letter but its typical I haven't been out of the county in a year and no dobht they'll coincide lol
edit: in fact can anyone enlighten me what determines the payday? The particular post office?
