    Any money owed will be in your bank 3-5 working days after payment is sent.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    It’s usually sent once the decision is made. I have no idea if they send texts as soon as the decision is made. If you want to know exactly when you will receive your money then you will need to ring the benefit department it’s related to and ask them.
