Westpac glitch delays $8m payout

Computers are supposed to help make things run smoother and easier, right?

ABOUT 20,000 people missed out on receiving $8 million in welfare payments after a computer glitch at Westpac Banking Corp.

Westpac spokesman David Lording said a "technical glitch" involving computer information about the Centrelink and pension payments had prevented money from being put in customers' accounts across the country today.

"People who when they woke up this morning should have had money in their accounts didn't because of this issue," he said.

"I understand the majority of payments will be made by about 1pm (AEDT) and it should be completed by early this afternoon.

"We apologise to our affected customers."

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
