Supporting the people of Ukraine

Ireland’s Post Office (An Post) is here to help Ukrainian Refugees. Your difficult journey here following hardship and loss is unimaginable and we stand with you. There are five key supports for you at your local Post Office, which are listed below. There are more than 900 Post Offices all over Ireland.

Social Welfare Payments

If you are entitled to social welfare income supports and/or Child Benefit, this will be paid at your designated post office. Please bring these 2 documents to your local Post Office and you will receive your payment.
a) Your PPS number which you will have received when you registered on arrival in Ireland.
b) One photographic ID e.g. your passport, driver’s licence or national ID card (expired documents will also be accepted)

Physical Postal Address

If you don’t have a full postal address at this moment, Address Point is a secure virtual personal address service which An Post can provide to people who are moving from one temporary address to another. This service gives you a unique postal address and enables you to pick up your mail from your designated Post Office. Details of how this service operates can be obtained from the Irish Red Cross and other organisations supporting people recently arrived from Ukraine. 

If you need to receive or send Money from Ukraine with no Fees

If you wish to send or receive money from Ukraine you can do so through our partner Western Union at your local post office and we will not charge the usual transfer fee.

If you need a FREE SIM Card

You can get a FREE SIM card which will have three month’s usage free. This is available at your local Post Office.
