The Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) has confirmed the changes to payment dates during the bank holiday long weekend this year.

And for some people it could be good news – with payments arriving earlier than expected.

If payment dates fall over the weekend or on bank holidays, the DWP tends to pay benefits earlier rather than later.
