Breaking News ! Families have faced huge financial struggles during the coronavirus pandemic. Now with Christmas not too far away, it is important for people to know when they will receive their payments. Millions of people have turned to Universal Credit to help get them through the pandemic. Now, the Department for Work and Pensions told our colleagues at Birmingham Live when they'll receive their payments over the festive period. A DWP spokesman said: "If a payment date is on a bank holiday or weekend, customers will be paid on the last working day before the bank holiday or weekend." Government officials have confirmed all the payment dates for the Christmas and New Year holidays. Universal Credit Christmas 2020 payment dates Universal Credit is paid on the same date every month that a claimant receives their first ever amount. So if your first Universal Credit payment arrived on September 25, it will then be paid on the 25th of every subsequent month - except when the date happens to be a Saturday, Sunday or bank holiday. Those whose regular monthly payment date falls on a weekend or bank holiday will typically find it's been moved to an earlier day instead. That's good news but it does mean the money will have to last a bit longer until the next payday. This year, things are different in that Monday December 28 is a bank holiday in lieu of Boxing Day, which will fall on a Saturday and therefore not count as a public holiday.
