There is no logic.

Therse are the date it has been paid recently

April 6th
may 1st
May 28th
June 26th

WTF? It can vastly differ, sotimes it's the middle of the month too

Where can I find out when its paid in? I have megaly fucked up my finances this month as I stupidly thught it would go in tomorrow (I always thought it went in on or around the 6th of the month.)

I always thought it was every 4 weeks so you actually get it 13 times a year.

I get it every 4 weeks so the date changes all the time.

i get mine every monday 4th week in month, but seems to be late this week. i can't work it out either tbh

I get it every 4 weeks, so the last payment was on
25th June
The one before that was
25th a Friday because Monday was Bank Holiday

I know some people get it weekly, but I think it depends on your circumstances.

v Confusing isn't it?

Why can't they just pay it on the smae dat?

Oh well, I suppose it does mean we get 13 payments a year.
