Delayed pension payment available to collect on Thursday

Those due to receive funds reminded Post Offices close early on Christmas Eve

Those who were expecting pension and benefit payments for 25 December a week early will have to wait until Christmas Eve morning.

The Isle of Man Government has confirmed the MiCard payments that weren't made available on Friday will be ready to collect from the Post Office on Thursday.

However, those who need to collect funds are reminded that most Post Office branches will be closing at midday on Christmas Eve.

Next Friday's payments had originally been scheduled a week early to avoid the clash with Christmas Day.

Those in need of urgent support are asked to contact the pensions team direct on 685176 or 687020.
