Default How does the Bank Holiday affect my JSA payment?

Hello,
I forgot to ask this yesterday when I signed on so I thought I'd see if anyone here had the answer. I sign on on a Thursday and so get paid the following Tuesday...however, we have a bank holiday monday this week so will that affect when I get paid. I remember that a long time ago Post Offices would have signs up stating you could cash Giro's early. But now that they use bank transfer for it does it go in on the same day, a day late or early?

I ask because I want to make sure I budget accordingly and don't end up caught short because I didn't know.

I sign on today and it's going to be in my bank on Wednesday like it always is.

The only time it changes is when your money day falls on a bank holiday

You SHOULD be OK

My child benefit & carers allowance go in the bank on a Monday, if it's a bank holiday they go in on the Friday beforehand.

I sign on a Thursday (ie yesterday) and was told my money would be in early due to the bank holiday - and yes, it's appeared in my bank account today.

I just found this out when I went to pick up my prescription, it was a surprise. I didn't get told whether it would be early or not, though we were laughing over the fact that I'd signed the last month with a date the month before and the JSA book had been signed by the advisor with a date the month after. Think we got a little distracted by our odd uselessness with knowing the correct date for the sign-in sheet

Thank you everyone, I don't think I woud have checked if it wasn't for a quick view of the posts on here
