Changes to Payment Dates this Easter

Posted 24 March 2021

Benefit Payments (including Universal Credit)

Where your payment is due to be received and it is a weekend or bank holiday you will receive their payment early.

For all benefit payments due on Friday 2nd April 2021 or Monday 5th April 2021 you will be paid early on Thursday 1st April 2021.

Don’t forget to leave any money for your Direct Debit in the bank as this will be paid later than normal even where your benefit payment is received early! More information on changes to Direct Debit payments is below

Direct Debit Payments

Because of the Easter weekend some Direct Debits will be taken from your bank account later than the agreed payment date; this is where payment dates fall on the weekend or on a bank holiday and will affect payments due between the Thursday 1st April and Monday 5th April 2021.

The table below provides details of when a Direct Debit will be taken from your bank account based on your usual payment date.
