    If you are due payment on 14th then your assessment period is 8th to 7th. As you closed on 9th that was after yourAP so you should still get a payment tomorrow (if one is due).

    If you have had a payment statement you should get the payment.
    Why did you have to restart a claim?

    So when you say you stopped and restarted your claim do you actually mean that you reported a change of circumstances (loss of employment). UC is designed to cope with change. The claim remains continuous.

    In future be aware that you do not need to stop a claim as your earnings increase. Because your UC is calculated every month, if you are earning 'too much' you will simply get no UC payment. Normally if nothing is payable UC will close the claim themselves. If this doesn't happen immediately it will happen after six months.
