Hi has anyone recently claimed this?
I was made redundant and made a claim on the 15th April
I’ve had a letter saying I’m entitled to it but it doesn’t say when it will be paid? Any ideas when I’ll see some money?

Turn2Us or or Citizens Advice websites may tell you.
Hope you find your answer.

Mine took a month to materialise so u will have wait till approx early May I think unless they have cleared the backlog.

It's paid every 2 weeks but I'm afraid I don't know how long the first payment will take - as Yoga says there is probably a backlog.

Thank you, yes I bet they are inundated
The letter explained it all except for the payment date, it said make sure you check your bank that you receive the correct payment, but it doesn’t give a date!
