The Department of Social Protection says payments to recipients who are Bank of Ireland and AIB customers have had their accounts credited.

It comes after some 73,000 people did not receive social welfare payments earlier due to a technical difficulty.

The department says Ulster Bank is helping affected customers with emergency cash, which can be obtained by visiting a branch with valid ID or by calling 1850-424-365.

"If this delay causes particular issues or concerns for individual Permanent TSB Customers, they should contact their local Permanent TSB branch and advise them of the issue. Permanent TSB will endeavour to facilitate customers where possible", it adds.

Customers of all other banks will receive their payment in their accounts tomorrow.

The Department of Social Protection has apologised for the inconvenience caused.
