Housing benefit payments

When your housing benefits are paid

The payment run dates listed here are for the 4 weekly and monthly payment runs for the financial year 2021-2022. 

The following payment dates are when the council generates the payment files. The payments will then appear in the designated bank accounts 3 - 4 working days later.  

Please note: monthly housing benefit payments are not due to reach your bank account until the 1st of the month, although some months payment may arrive slightly earlier.  

Important: we ask that you DO NOT call or contact us to query receipt of this payment before this date.
