    Hello @staceylouise34. If a payment from UC is due on a weekend or bank holiday it is paid the working day before. So if it falls at a weekend, you will be paid on a Friday.

    Can I ask, as you're in temporary accommodation have you been advised to claim Housing Benefit? I just wanted to check as Universal Credit don't pay rent for temporary accommodation, it's still paid for through housing benefit.
