Hi There,
  I am Just Inquiring to see if Anybody Else has had this problem, it's the first time it's happened but i'm receiving  Carer's Allowance as Carer for my son who receives DLA, I'm unemployed and care for him Full time, my payments are weekly and regular since we applied last September, Always shows up in my bank on Saturday to use, It's a monday payment but it's always there on a Saturday without Fail, Apart from Today, it's the first time since Last September there has been no money in on a Saturday, I'm going to Contact them on Monday, especially if still no payment. Was just wondering if anyone else has had troubles like this?

    Hopefully this has been solved now but some banks have changed their payment system for Mondays direct debits and anything you have going into your bank. It just means that If a payment falls on a MOnday and it used to show on a Saturday then this will no longer happen, you have to wait until the Monday for payment into your bank.

    This doesn't apply to all banks, but some of them.
