Benefits and credits to be paid early ahead of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s State Funeral
The government has confirmed payments of benefits due to land in accounts on Monday 19 September will be made early.
The Department for Work and Pensions and HM Revenue and Customs have put arrangements in place to ensure all benefits and credits due to be paid on this date – now a bank holiday for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s State Funeral - will be delivered in advance.

This arrangement follows standard DWP and HMRC protocol that sees benefit and credit payment dates brought forward in line with national bank holidays.
The full list of payments affected are:
Disability Living Allowance
Employment and Support Allowance
Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit
