Housing Benefit payment dates for the financial year April 2016 - March 2017

'Date of payment' indicates when the payments are issued by us

'Frequency' is how often your Housing Benefit is paid (your Housing Benefit entitlement letter tells you your payment scheme; this will be either 2 weekly, 4 weekly or monthly).

'Payment should reach accounts by' gives the guideline date when the payment should reach your bank account, if you are paid by BACS.

Most payments take a minimum of 2 working days from the date we issue the payment to the date it is credited to your account; if you receive your payment directly into a Building Society account, your payment may take an extra working day to clear.

Date of payment for dates falling on or around public holidays may be subject to change.
