Social Welfare Certificates Electronic Processing (E-Certs)

There have been recent changes in the processing of Social Welfare Certificates.

Whilst the initial IB1 application process (1st certificate) is still a paper process, any subsequent certificates can be processed online by your GP.

The benefit of this is that it avoids delays in payment for you.

If however your application relates to COVID-19 you are able to apply online at mywelfare.ie
