Hi all newbie here hope I'm posting in the right section.
I get my tax credits weekly on a Thursday. Last week I received it on Wednesday (16th March instead of 17th) thinking it was one of those extra payments I was grumbled to find out on the Thursday it wasn't it was just early hey ho thought nothing more about it, especially since I've found out its happened to a lot of others.
So today I was talking to my mum about it because I thought maybe it be early this week what with easter coming up and being early last week but it's not. My mum mentioned could it be end of year payment last week to which I fobbed off don't be silly.
Well now I'm in a right panic! I rely on that weekly payment for weeks food gas electric etc.
I used the new government gateway site to check when my next payment is due by. Last week payment was received on 16th website said £xx.xx paid by 17th - correct and received. Today it says £xx.xx. paid by 31st!! confused angry
Does that mean there's no payment for the 24th tomorrow? Doesn't help my bank doesn't display payments until around 4am rather than midnight like most others.
I'm am losing it major panic/stress stations!

Mine went in on Wednesday instead of Thursday last week too. People seemed to think it was because of St Patrick's Day but that's only a bank holiday in N.Ireland I think, so no idea if that's right.

I hadn't given it a second thought tbh and am assuming the payment will go in as normal tomorrow.

This is the new website you can sign in to check your next payment due date. It just asked for your national insurance number and name then security questions to set up the account. You get a government gateway user id and they text a pin to you.

You will receive TC on the 24th , it was early last week as a bank holiday anywhere in the UK triggers an early payment.

Hi I applied for financial hardship with child tax credit due to an over payment. I can see on my online tax credit my payments have gone up. But where it shows you your payments dates. In brackets it says (this is a one off payment) which is next to tomorrows date 3/10/17 which is my usual payment date. Does this mean there will be an extra payment plus my usual payment. As Iv looked online and it's saying one off payment could be an extra payment. Do they give a extra payment for financial hardship. Thank you in advance

Hi was it an extra payment? I've just looked online and mine falls on the same day it's normally due 🤔

A one off payment on your normal payment day usually means that this months payment is a slightly different amount. You should be able to see the next 3 payments which are due and the dates they will be paid.

Has anyone been paid their tax credits early this week?
I've been paid mine a day early and I can't seem to find out why?
Thanks in advance.

Yes, mine went in today instead of tomorrow. No idea why but it was the normal amount so it’s presumably nothing worrying

This has happened to me today, did you find out why it happened to you? Did you still get your money or does it say you still can't use this site

Shazg83 Tue 14-Aug-18 01:40:48
