Pension and other social welfare cheques should be available by August 2nd

Citizens who have not received their pension, public assistance and disability cheques should expect them by Thursday, August 2nd.

Following calls to our newsroom from members of the public, we reached out to the ministry of social development.

Officials explained that there was an internal administrative error at TT Post which caused a delay in the posting of the cheques. 

We were told that the cheques are usually all delivered by the last day of the month, but due to the problem TT Post, that did not happen on time.

 The ministry also said that persons whose payments are made via direct deposit are not affected in any way by this situation as it also apologised for any inconveniences caused.
