The system before was to issue crisis loans that had to be paid back & the claimant had to go to collect a giro cheque from DWP, which had to be cashed in a post office, where they might not want the cashier or other customers knowing about their need for a crisis loan.
but it was not just crisis loans that giro cheque were used for, my cold weather payment only this year were put into my bank, A post office is not the same as a supermarket thousands of benefit claimants still use the post office to get there benefits using the post office card
