    There are so many reasons it could be - rather than speculate its probably best just to wait until 7.30 and find out from DWP.

    weve not been paid jsa due today either, this is the 2nd time this has happened in 6 weeks, i had to get a crisis loan last time, i cant do that again. they say its due to the amount of new claimants and them being behind, but thats hardly our fault.

    the thing thats got me is the fact that they said they cant pay it even though they know the moneys been paid to the wrong account and are waiting for it to come back.

    If it's always been paid every 4 weeks to the same bank account how can it suddenly be sent to a different account, where have they got this new account from? I hope you haven't had any direct debits due in the next few days that would need the money.

    If you can't wait a week for them to sort it out and pay you could you ask them if they'd send a giro? I don't know if they would but it's worth a try.

    I've always kept the same bank account for my OH's benefits, I've always been too afraid to change it incase it messed his payments up.
