The state is spending more than â¬3.5m a year sending pay slips in the post to gardai and teachers, years after other public servants switched to electronic notification systems.
More than 14,000 gardai get weekly pay slips mailed to their home address, at an annual cost of up to â¬750,000, while 110,000 serving and retired teachers and special needs assistants get fortnightly wage and pension slips in the post.
The physical pay slips are still being dispatched via An Post four years after most of the public service began getting their wage details by email.
