Payment dates 2017/18

'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).

'Date account should be credited' 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 have been moved from their usual times.
