Once post offices open on the 4th of May, payment of public assistance funds, senior citizens’ allowance payments, pension payments will be carried out through post offices.

“All those who will visit the post office to obtain these allowances and payments are requested to bring a pen, and we will not provide a pen from the Post Office, as there are risks associated with using the same pen,” said Ariyaratne.

Ariyaratne further said, “Earlier the post offices used only one document to get signatures from the people, but we have arranged for separate forms to get the signatures of the people.”
