If you receive HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) or Department for Work and Pensions benefit payments (DWP) into a Post Office card account you need to change your account.

The government acknowledges the important financial support these Benefits and Allowances provide to individuals and families. They have therefore extended the contract with the Post Office card account holders until 5th April 2022.

If you receive benefits into your Post Office card account you will need to open another current before that date to continue receiving benefits directly into your account.
