    Bank Holiday in NI payments early? 14th Mar 13 at 4:47 PM
    With it being a Bank Holiday in NI on Monday will we on the Mainland be getting Mondays payments on Friday?

    i know some Benefits they pay early if a bank holiday anywhere in the UK but not sure for Carers Allowance.

    Any DWP payments that are due on a bank holiday monday will always be paid on the friday preceding that monday. So yes they should go in a day early.

    even if the Bank holiday is just in NI?

    i have just looked for Child Benefit and that says No but yes to child tax credit but can not find anything for Carers allowance.

    Well if it arrives in the morning then you will know. It certainly should do if DWP follow normal gov't payment guidelines.

    My tax credits payment has gone in today but not my Carer's allowance, both are due monday. I think this happened last time as well when it was a bank holiday other than in england.

    Check the date of the opening post. It was 14/3/13, just before Paddy's Day.
