Schools payroll remediation

The Ministry is working to remediate current and former school employees who have not received the correct entitlements.

Keeping yourself safe from phishing scams

Phishing is when someone uses an email, text or phone call to try to get access to sensitive information (like bank account numbers and passwords).

For schools payroll remediation payments, we will never ask you for your bank account login and password. The information you receive from us will direct you to the Ministry of Education’s website.

Phishing scammers will claim to be from a legitimate organisation, and often have email addresses or websites that look very real. They'll often ask you to claim a prize, check your details, or tell you that your account is expiring or needs to be checked.
