NOTICE – SOCIAL SERVICES COUPON DISTRIBUTION/GRAND BAHAMA – As the Department of Social Services transitions to online services, the restructuring of coupon distribution is taking place, said Dorothea Gomez, Officer in Charge of the Department of Social Services during a press conference on Wednesday.

All other Social Services clients are asked to pay attention to the dates provided and will be dealt with as follows: May 30 – surnames A to L; May 31 – surnames M to Q and June 1 – surnames R to Z. Registration will be held from 8am to 1pm.
Clients are advised that if they cannot collect their coupons in person, they are to provide a designated person with a letter of authorization to collect the coupon. The person collecting must be in possession of official identification (National Insurance Card, Voter’s Card, Driver’s License or Passport).
