As far as I am aware, child benefit is paid every 4 weeks
Not a specific day/date each month
Check when you received your last payment and work from there

Is everyone's the same? Mines due a week today, It comes a week after payday for me

Mine is paid weekly on a Tuesday.

I am sure yours will be paid at some point today. Keep checking your bank account throughout the day.

It was paid on the seventeenth. I believe it is paid the second last Monday of every month?

I've checked our account and the last 2 payments were Monday 6th August and Monday 3rd September.

The letter said every 4 weeks so I expect the next one to be Monday 1st October.

If it's been more than 4 weeks I would check your letter for contact details.

Where and how do you check your payments !? I can't see it on my tax gov account !?

SavoyCabbage Mon 24-Sep-18 07:40:33

It should be today, according to the table.

The 27th August was a bank holiday so you were paid on the 24th instead. Then four weeks from the 27th (your actual day) is today.

Has your dc stayed on at school and you forgot to tell them?

You have to have a government gateway account. If you haven't got one, just ring up the tax credits number and speak to them.

I had my payments suspended and couldn't work out why. It was because I had changed jobs and my new work had put my work address as my home address which meant they had conflicting info. Could something like that have happened? It was soon sorted and they gave me 2 one off payments which covered most of the payments I had missed.

Other than that, did you reapply correctly??
