Benefits payment over Jubilee weekend:

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has confirmed some benefit payments will be paid earlier than usual due to the bank holiday.

Thursday, June 2, is a UK-wide spring bank holiday and Friday, June 3, has been declared a national holiday to allow everyone across the country to celebrate.

The DWP offices and phone lines will be closed during this time.

This means anyone due to be paid specific benefits on these dates will instead receive their money earlier on Wednesday, June 1. 

The DWP told Cambridge News: “On Thursday 2 and Friday 3 June offices and phone lines are closed.

"To make sure people receive their payments on a day when our offices are open, arrangements have been made to make some payments early.

"If the expected payment date is Thursday 2 or Friday 3 June benefits will be paid early on Wednesday 1 June.”
