Changes to Housing Benefit payments from 1 August 2024

The regular two weekly and four weekly Housing Benefit payment run will be moving from Wednesday to Monday from 1 August 2024.

This is a permanent change and means you will get your payment earlier.

Payments made into a bank account will arrive on the Friday of the payment week instead of the following Monday.

Cheque payments will be sent a day earlier and arrival will be dependent on the postal service.
