Breaking News ! Revised payment dates will come into force for Universal Credit payments and other benefits because of the August bank holiday weekend this month. Universal Credit claims have surged during the coronavirus crisis, with 3.1 million individuals in 2.5 million households having made a claim since the start of March this year. However, that's not to say all applicants will end up being paid the benefit. Anyone applying for Universal Credit must wait five weeks for their first payment, consisting of a one-month assessment period in which their circumstances and income are checked, and then another seven days for the money to reach their account. If a first payment was received on April 8, claimants would normally receive future amounts on the 8th of every month after that. But pay dates would vary if they end up falling on a weekend or bank holiday, which is why dates have been revised for August 2020. Below are all the dates for Universal Credit and other benefit payments for August 2020.

Your normal pay date is determined by when your first payment arrives. But it will be moved in any month where your pay date happens to fall on a weekend or bank holiday.

The original decision letter sets out the date of a first payment and what day of the week it will usually be paid. It would never be arranged to fall on a weekend. But if your payment date is on a bank holiday, you will usually be paid before the bank holiday. After that you’ll continue to get paid as normal. Due: Monday, August 31 Paid: Friday, August 28 Child Benefit - August Bank Holiday payment dates Child benefit is usually paid every four weeks on a Monday or Tuesday (but you can get it paid weekly if you’re a single parent or if one of you is claiming other benefits). So it would not be paid on a weekend anyway.
