Your JSA is paid into your account on the third working day after you sign on ... Tuesday, like you say.

And Tuesday isn't a holiday. So no you won't get it early.

I am on JSA, sign on Thursday and money in on tuesday like yourself.However on different weeks it seems from yourself. During the last BH my money went in early, it was paid the tuesday before I signed on and was in my account 3 days later, i.e if the same has happened with you it should of gone in today.
Here to learn and pass on my experiences.
Had a total of 8200 of debt written off due to harassment during 2010 and 2012.

Their computers don't get the Monday off. So for them it's a normal working day.

You'll get your money on Tuesday.

Don't they just bring payments forward by one day (to compensate for the bank holiday) so the payment will be as normal on the Tuesday???

My own experience from signing on Thursdays and receiving payment tuesdays, has shown me that on bank holidays payment is released on the tuesday prior to signing on meaning you get it Friday (the day after signing on).

Fed up of saying this now

I get paid JSA the same days as the OP plus also bank with the same bank. So I am using my own first hand experience.

Due to the bank holidays and the fact DWP release funds early, the bank makes the money available Friday evening-Saturday morning.

However the bank will often date it as Tuesdays date.

This tactic also applies to any payment made using the BACS system, such as wages. The timescale varies on both your bank and how far down the list you are as they work through the inputting. So one bank holiday you may get paid by 10pm Friday night, the next by 6am Saturday morning.

Your JSA is normally released by BACS when the JC have input evidence to say that you've been in to sign. It then takes 3 working days to clear into your account.

Because Monday is a bank holiday, it's not a working day and thus this would normally delay the payment by 1 day as a result.

To compensate, the payments are all advanced slightly early so those that would be affected get their payments on time. Thus your payment would have been advance paid on the Wednesday and will be with you on the Tuesday. Only those who signed on Wednesday would get it early on the Friday.

Your bank may credit the money to your account early, but that has nothing to do with the DWP. Your payment day remains Tuesday.
