The way i read it,
the DWP is going to pay 2 weeks in arrears all benafit payments,
starting and based on your N.I. Number, starting in april
So will this mean at sometime in the near furture there will be a gap of over a month in the payments,
As we are all payed at the moment two weeks in advance, ?????
or am I miss reading the info on this page,
[it affects all DPW Payments ]
Hi liondad

Here is a lnk to the jobcentrePlus site for info about the changes
http://www.jobcentreplus.gov.uk/JCP/Cus ... index.html

There will be changes for some carers but these will come into effect at different times depending on your circumstances
So - for carers there will eventually be changes to Income Support payments which top up Carer's Allowance
However, at present, if you are just getting Carer's Allowance there will be no change
If your benefit payment days are going to be changed you will be informed in writing and there will be payments that will help you to bridge the gap

If you need more information ring us on CarersLine on 0808 808 7777 Weds and Thurs 10-12 & 2-4

Best wishes

Looks like my carers premium will be affected as it comes under income support.
Exactly how do they think we are going to manage to make money last two weeks at a time? It's bad enough trying to make it last one week with the pittance they pay us! Idiots!
