Around 28,000 people have had their pandemic unemployment payment (PUP) cut off after failing to confirm they were still eligible for the weekly payment.
The Department of Social Protection says those impacted were contacted four times reminding them to confirm they were eligible.
Those who did not respond now won't receive their weekly payment as tomorrow.
However, they can apply to have their payment restored if they are indeed still eligible to receive the PUP.
In a statement, Minister for Social Protection Heather Humpreys said: “Our resources are not unlimited and we need to ensure that this money goes to the people and families who genuinely need it.
“My Department has made every effort to contact every person receiving the payment in recent weeks in order to confirm their continued eligibility.
"The vast, vast majority of people responded and will continue to receive their payment as normal."
This week will see 232,400 receive the PUP, with the Department saying the numbers have dropped 61% since the peak in mid-May.
Around 9,700 people have closed their claims this week, as more businesses reopen in the wake of the recent COVID-19 restrictions.
The PUP is currently split into two tiers - a €350 per week payment for a majority of recipients, and a lower €203 payment for those who were earning less than €200 in January and February.
The payment is set to continue until at least April next year.
