    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.

    ............
    Remember that those are the dates the DWP says yr payment should arrive, usually it arrives a day early so you may get a payment on the Monday. I'm hoping I do!

    Wouldn't expect it to be

    Someone who works for the DWP I met last week said they don't like to give any out early if not necessary as people leave themselves short.
    One day I might be more organised...........:confused:
