PremierLeague-News.Com- Here's why you could receive your August benefits early
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Thousands of Universal Credit and other benefits claimants could receive this month's payment early. There is a bank holiday on Monday, August 29, and if you're due an instalment on this date it's likely you'll get your money beforehand. The downside to getting paid early is that it means there is a longer gap between your August and September payments and you'll have to make your cash last longer. Make sure your monthly budget takes the change into account if you have one. The change is significant. If your payment is due to fall on Monday, August 29, you should receive your cash the nearest working day before. That means you should get your money on Friday, August 26.
