    From other threads, usually 3 to 4 working days.
    For large amounts they do ask about instalments because some claimants may prefer instalments (if, for example, they don't trust themselves to blow it all in one go and would prefer to have it spread out).
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
