CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. - Social Assistance and Child and Family Services clients on P.E.I. will be issued program payments early as a result of possible delays with Canada Post.

Those clients who receive regular monthly payments from the Department of Family and Human Services will be issued payments on Wednesday, Nov. 28 by cheque and electronic funds transfer.

Although Canada Post workers are back to work, the early payments will avoid delays resulting from recent mail service disruptions.

Clients are encouraged to sign up for electronic funds transfer with forms available at the Family and Human Services offices.

Clients requiring additional information should contact their case worker.
