So sorry if I come across as blunt, I have Asperger’s.

Sorry to be a bother.

    Hi @JMGG90, and welcome to the community! Lovely to meet you.

    Not a bother at all, hopefully some of our community members will be able to help you out with this!

    @JMGG90, good morning and welcome, as all benefit payments are automatically organised and payed directly into your bank account I think that the payment will be early or on time, check your account online Tuesday and I bet everything is or will be ok.

    Payments that are due to be in your bank Friday or Monday will be paid on Thursday.

    As the 4th is Wednesday then payment will be as normal. I've never had a problem receiving my payments as normal on the Wednesday after a bank holiday.

    If you bank with Natwest then because of the weekend and bank holiday payment changes then you should have your money today. Natwest will not pay you early for any bank holiday.
