One TheJournal.ie reader said Wednesday is a particularly busy day for payments to go through, adding that it is also the day the disability allowance is paid.

Like the majority of welfare recipients, we haven’t a penny left by Wednesday of every week. I have no money to do shopping and no food in the house – literally sitting here waiting for money to come through so I can eat.Also my rent and ESB are paid automatically from my account today so far they haven’t been paid either.

This is not the first time there have been issues with payments and accessing money. The bank was hit with technical issues in January and February of this year alone.
