Default Christmas & New Year Tax Credits Payment Dates




The dates have been slightly amended by HMRC since the original post.

Was just wondering if these payment dates could be applied to other benefits also?

You are best to call up the other benefit office(s) to check.

To be honest the TCO staff havent even been given this information yet, it is actually on the recorded message when you phone them up.

The only way I found out is because we had a memo telling us the recorded message changed - if you didnt read the full transcript of the recorded message you wouldnt know when people should expect their Xmas payments!!

Bumped again - still getting people calling to ask even though it tells you on the recorded message!

PS. can someone thanks my original post just so it isn't 13 - it's unlucky!

I have updated the payment schedule for the Festive Period.

A couple of dates have slightly changed and I have also included the schedule for giro payments.

Is this from the HMRC website?

There are a couple of small errors, well I hope there is otherwise I will be in for a long wait since I am due a tax credit payment on 2nd January .

Default HMRC online payment schedule

Tax credits and Child Benefit payments over Christmas
If you get tax credits, your payments may be paid a little earlier than usual over Christmas and New Year. Payment dates that are affected are as follow:
  • if your payment is due to be paid into your account on Thursday 25 December, Friday 26 December or Monday 29 December, it will be paid into your account on Wednesday 24 December instead
  • if your payment is due to be paid into your account on Wednesday 31 December 2008, Thursday 1 January or Friday 2 January 2009, it will be paid into your account on Tuesday 30 December 2008 instead
Child Benefit payments won't be affected.
Hope this helps clarify things.

You have quoted the HMRC website but the table I posted above is the exact dates given to TCO advisers.

There are a couple of differences for Scotland/England/Ireland/Wales.

And the HMRC website for some reason doesn't give dates for giro payments.

Benefit payments over Christmas 2008

18 December 2008

The Department has always ensured that when customers are due payments on a national public holiday when most banks and financial institutions are closed, they have access to their money in advance.
Payments due on Wednesday 24, Thursday 25, and Friday 26 December will be paid on Tuesday 23 December.
Payments due on Thursday 1 January 2009 will be paid on Wednesday 31 December 2008.

that is on the DWP news site
