Changes will apply to those who take payments from the post office, those who receive checks and those who receive payments into their bank accounts, according to the Department for Social Protection.

While payments made for the week of December 19 did not change, an advance payment was made for the following week.

If you were supposed to receive a payment on December 22nd or 23rd, the payment was made a day earlier on December 21st and 22nd.

The final schedule change will come on January 2, as the cash will be paid out three days earlier on December 30 instead.

Weekly payments will return to normal from January 3, 2023, the Department of Social Protection confirmed.

All department offices, including Intreo Centers and branch offices, will be closed on January 2nd.

And the government confirmed that the change in welfare payment dates will also affect part-time, casual or short-time workers over the Christmas and New Year period.

All concerned must follow the guidelines on MyWelfare.ie to ensure they receive their payments on time.

Regardless, employees should only have to pay the higher income tax rate if they earn more than 50,000 euros, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar demanded.

Single people currently pay 20 percent income tax up to EUR 36,800 and then 40 percent income tax on any additional wages.

This varies slightly depending on marital status and whether you have children.

In the 2023 budget, the government raised the limit for the higher tax band, which will allow workers to earn up to €40,000 over the next year without entering that 40 percent tax band.

Earlier this year, Leo Varadkar proposed a new 30 percent income tax band that would benefit middle earners.

The Treasury has been tasked with reviewing the proposal, however a series of complications appear to have put the idea on hold.
