Cut off dates?


Wondering what date is the monthly UC payment confirmed as going to your bank account and cannot be cancelled?

1) The final day of the assessment period your monthly calculation is based on?
2) 3 days later when your statement is produced?
3) Or four days after this when payment is made?

    Why would the payment be cancelled?
    Any payment can be stopped at anytime up until it has actually been sent to your bank.
    The 7 days between the AP end and the payment being sent out are so that any errors can be checked and adjusted if necessary. (eg if you spot something wrong on your statement and query it).
    If it does get sent to your bank when you are not entitled to it then that is an overpayment and they will want it back.
