Technical issues delay payment of Education Grants

If you applied for an Education Grant up to 10 Feb , and your application was approved, we were expecting your grant for that Batch payment, to be paid into your bank account yesterday, 2 March. You will have received an email communication confirming that.
Arohamai, due to technical issues with the software, this has not yet happened and payments have therefore been delayed for that batch.
The software service provider is working on the fault urgently – we are hoping that payment will be made just as soon as possible.
Unfortunately, we can’t yet confirm an exact payment date. However, we are hopeful payment will made by early to mid next week.
We will keep you informed with any other updates from the software company as they become available.
In the meantime, we apologise for the inconvenience caused and thank you for your patience.
Ngā mihi,
