MILLIONS of Brits are set to receive benefits and Universal Credit TODAY, as the nation prepares for Her Majesty’s funeral.
Those receiving both Universal Credit and pension credit, among others, will receive their payment TODAY, three days earlier than expected.
This is because the Queen’s state funeral has been declared a bank holiday for Brits across the country, meaning payments need to be made today, rather than on Monday.
Universal Credit recipients aren’t the only ones who will receive their payments early.
Those claiming; Attendance Allowance, Carer’s Allowance, Disability Living Allowance, Employment and Support Allowance, Income Support, Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit, Jobseeker’s Allowance, Pension Credit, Personal Independence Payment, State Pension, Child Benefit/Guardian’s Allowance, Working Tax Credits and finally, Child Tax Credits will also get payments this week.
