Benefits and tax credits payment dates Easter 2017

If you are worried about when you will receive benefits and tax credits over the Easter holidays 2017, the government advises that you would normally receive payment on the last working day before the holidays.

In effect, this means*:

If you’re expecting a tax credits (or Universal Credit) payment on Good Friday (14 April 2017) you should receive it a day early on Thursday 13 April 2017.

If you are expecting a tax credits (or Universal Credit) payment on 17 April 2017 (Monday) you’ll also receive it on Thursday 13 April 2017.


Payments for social security and disability benefits (JSA, ESA, PIP, etc) expected on either 14 April or 17 April should be made on 13 April.

If you are due a Child Benefit payment on 17 April 2017 you should instead receive it on 13 April 2017.

And in case you’re also wondering about Mayday, ANY payments due on 1 May are scheduled to be sent out to claimants on 28 April 2017.
