DWP is set to change the benefit payment dates for those claimants whose due date falls on the long bank holiday weekend at the beginning of June. The four-day break to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee will run from Thursday, June 2, to Sunday June 5.
When Universal Credit, State Pension, PIP, and other payments fall on a weekend or bank holiday, they are usually paid on the working day before. This means that people who are expecting their cash on Thursday, June 2, Friday, June 3, Saturday, June 4, or Sunday, June 5, should instead receive them on Wednesday, June 1, 2022.
You don’t need to do anything to get your money on that date – the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) should automatically adjust the payment to reach your bank account earlier. If your payment date falls on a normal working day on either side of the long weekend, you’ll get your money as normal.
The following benefits are likely to be affected by the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend:
- Attendance Allowance
- Carer’s Allowance
- Disability Living Allowance
- Employment and Support Allowance
- Income Support
- Jobseeker’s Allowance
- Pension Credit
- Personal Independence Payment
- State Pension
Tax credits, such as Working Tax Credit
- Universal Credit
Child Benefit is usually paid every 4 weeks on a Monday or Tuesday, so it’s not due on this bank holiday.
