Welfare payments are released early

Saturday December 29, 2018 Written by Published in Local

The welfare payments for the January 1, 2019 were made available to all Cook Island beneficiaries yesterday at their respective BCI branches. 


Initially the benefits were planned to be made available on December 31. However, to help minimise bank queues on the final day of 2018, the Ministry of Internal Affairs decided to spread the withdrawal of funds over two days. 

An Internal Affairs spokesperson said this would allow beneficiaries an extra two days to make important purchases instead of rushing to the stores at the last minute.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Internal Affairs would like to wish everyone a safe and prosperous New Year.
