Housing benefit payments for those who are paid every two weeks will be paid early this year.
Payment would normally be due on Monday 25 December 2017, but as this is Christmas Day and a Bank Holiday, payment will be made on Friday 22 December 2017 instead.
Two weekly housing benefit payments will be paid by BACs into the nominated bank account on 22 December 2017.
Four weekly housing benefit payments are not affected by the Christmas break and will be paid on the normal dates. The next payment is due to be paid into bank accounts on Monday 8 January 2018.
