A system-wide banking issue has resulted in some bank customers experiencing delays in receiving credit payments today - including child welfare payments.
A problem with the European Payments Infrastructure overnight saw some banking customers failing to receive payments first thing this morning.
Ulster Bank, AIB and Permanent TSB all confirmed that some of their customers had been impacted by the delay.
However, the Irish Banking and Payments Federation has said that all affected payments are now being processed and should be received by customers by this afternoon.
The Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection confirmed that an issue had affected some social welfare payments through certain banks.
The Department said it had processed all its payments as usual.
The European payments issue has now been resolved.— ask permanent tsb (@askpermanenttsb) October 2, 2018
This means that any payment due to transfer to your account from another bank today has been processed.
You should expect to see the payment now credited to your account. We wish to apologise for any inconvenience caused. pic.twitter.com/zjydNLAI10
