re: social welfare payments for 2010

I know what you mean, are we getting paid a week early for Christmas, ie the week before Christmas do we get paid double or because Christmas falls on the Sat do we just get paid on our normal dates.

Am I correct in saying thats what you are asking?

re: fianna gail and sein fein and Other Charity Organisations

I know that all the above parties and charities are trying to persuade the Government to reinstate the Christmas Bonus, but frankly we all know that is not going to happen.

Why? Because the Government does not care

"Getting paid" means you actually work for a wage ...

Really?

I've been paying tax since I left college and unlucky enough to find myself in the situation where I'm picking up contract work and welfare.

Not everything is black and white my friend.

Edit: and on another note I hope that if your ever unlucky enough to be in a similar situation you don't come across somesome quite as judgemental and condescending

In answer to your question OP I would imagine that unless you collect your payments on a monday or tuesday, then it collect them as normal. These are the only week days over xmas and new year that are public holidays.

Best to ask would probably be your local post office (assuming this is where you collect your payment) or your local social welfare office.

Mod Note::

Jesus almighty what a train wreck.

Stop correcting each others spelling and pointing out flaws in such.
On the flip side of the coin, the forum charter asks people not to type in txt spk so plz I ask you all to type normally.

Topic Cleaned

I know that the GPO has a notice in their front door notifying people of the Christmas schedule of payments. I didn't read it, but it did catch my eye.
