People who receive benefits in the Isle of Man have been warned about a delay.

The Treasury has experienced a one-day delay in issuing its benefit cheques.

As a result of problems with the printing of cheques on Tuesday, Social Security benefit cheques that were due to be delivered today (Wednesday) will be delivered in the post tomorrow (Thursday).

Affected claimants who wish to receive their cheque today may collect it from the division’s general counter on the ground floor of Markwell House, on the corner of Market Street and Well Road Hill in Douglas, between 10.30am and 2pm, but must have photographic identification with them.

All cheques not collected by 2pm today will be posted and customers should receive them tomorrow.

A government spokesman said: ‘Social Security would like to apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have any questions contact 685094.’
