When is your next tax credits payment due?
Your tax credits payments are made every week or every four weeks, depending on what you chose when you claimed. If your usual payment day falls on a bank holiday, you'll get your payment earlier than normal.
How to check when your next payment is due
Your award notice tells you the date of your first payment. So you can use this to work out when your next payment is due - depending on how often you're paid.
Another way to find out is to look at your bank statement to check the date when your last payment went into your account.
