Universal Credit Christmas payment dates in FULL – every payment before December 25 | Personal Finance | Finance
In 2021, winter will present several bank holiday occasions, as Christmas and Boxing Day fall on weekends.
The Government is shifting the bank holidays to the day after instead, meaning people won’t receive payments on December 25, 26, 27 and 28.
New Year’s Day also falls on a Saturday, so there is an additional bank holiday on Monday, January 3 2022.
The Government has introduced alternative dates for people due benefit payments on any of the listed bank holidays.
