With the June Bank Holiday fast approaching, the payment dates for those on certain social welfare schemes will change as post offices and banks close for the day.

People can expect to receive their payments in advance of the day, however, this could depend on how you have it set up, for example, through the bank, cheque etc.

We have gathered all the information on the affected social welfare payments, including child benefit and all pension schemes.

Child benefit

Those receiving child benefit will likely not be affected by the June Bank Holiday as those that qualify for the payment and are to be paid directly into your bank account should get it on Tuesday, 7th June.

However, in certain cases people may receive it on Friday, 3rd June instead, however, this may not be the same for everyone.

Those receiving their payments by cheques that are set to arrive by Monday, 6th June, should also get them by the previous Friday as they will be posted a day earlier.

This may mean for people with children aged 16 and 17, it could be their final payment until September.

For parents and legal guardians with children between the ages of 16 and 17, their monthly Children’s Allowance will be suspended for July and August with June being their final payment of the summer months.

If their children remain in full-time education, are in full-time training or have a disability and cannot support themselves, their payments will begin again in September.

They will also receive the back payments for July and August with this payment.

However, if their child turns 18 before September, they will receive any payment that would have been given up until the month they turned 18.
