Click above for AUGUST 2015 Bank Holiday Information
If it’s a bank holiday anywhere in the UK your payment should be early. If you are due to receive benefit or tax credit payments on a Monday you should receive the payment on the previous FRIDAY
Your Child Benefit payment is usually paid early if it’s due on a bank holiday. So it should be paid on FRIDAY 1st MAY and FRIDAY 22nd MAY if you are usually paid on a Monday.
Also May can be a bit funny as the HMRC sort out under and overpayments for previous years so amounts can vary a little over April/May. If you have concerns and can bear to wait in a queue you could call the tax credit helpline on 0345 300 3900. Best time to call is 9.30 to 10.30 am or 3pm.
