    Hi @dannyUK76
     Although your payment is due today it doesn’t always turn up at 1 minute past midnight. So I would say to check later on today and give them a call if it’s not there by tomorrow morning.

    HI,

    If you haven't recently had a work capability assessment or been sent a work capability assessment form then it's most likely an error on their part. Give them a ring if it's not in your bank because they are the only ones that can tell you. Hopefully it will have been paid now.

    Same day fast payments usually go into your bank within about 3 hours, i'd advise you to check your about after about this time and hopefully payment will have go in by then.

    If not, do you have some food in your house to last you until you receive your money? If not a friend or family member that you can get some food from or maybe even borrow a small amount of money until you receive your payment?

    @dannyUK76 I hope you get your payment in time for you to get something for your dinner. Payments are often received before the time they state, just keep checking

    If you don't have enough of food to last you for today do you have someone that you can ask? Hopefully payment will be in your bank before the end of today. If it isn't then you'll need to ring DWP again first thing in the morning.
