Housing Benefit payments over the Christmas / New Year period will be paid as normal, as follows :

If you are due a BACS payment on 23.12.13 this is expected to be paid into your account on 23.12.13.

If you are due a BACs payment on  30.12.13 this is expected to be paid into your account on 30.12.13.

If you are due a BACS payment on 06.01.14 this is expected to be paid into your account on 06.01.14.  

If you are paid by cheque your cheque will be issued early to allow for the Royal Mails last posting date and for the Bank Holidays. You should therefore receive your cheque no later than normal.

However as we cannot guarantee when they will be delivered by the Royal Mail you may wish to consider receiving your Housing Benefit payments by BACs. 

Payment by BACs is :

  • Safe and secure - no cheques to go astray or be delayed in the post
  • Fast - you do not have to wait fora cheque to clear before you can access your money
  • Convenient - you will not have to pay in your cheque, and you will be able to get your money direct from your bank account

To be paid by BACs please supply your bank account details
