Confirmed dates for the payment of social assistance before the June bridge – Child benefit and pension

With the June bank holiday fast approaching, payment dates for those on certain welfare plans will change as post offices and banks close on that day.

People can expect to receive their payments before the day, however this could depend on how you have set it up, eg via bank, check, etc.

We have collected all the information on the social benefits affected, including benefits for dependent children and all pension plans.

child benefit

Those receiving the child benefit are not likely to be affected by the June bank holiday, as those who qualify for the payment and have it paid directly into their bank account should receive it on Tuesday, June 7.

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

Those who receive their payments through checks that should arrive on Monday, June 6, should also receive them the previous Friday, since they will be published a day earlier.

This may mean that for people with children ages 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 Child Allowance will be suspended during July and August, with June being their final payment for the summer months.

If your children continue in full-time education, are in full-time training, or have a disability and cannot support themselves, your payments will start again in September.

With this payment they will also receive the July and August arrears.

However, if your child turns 18 before September, you will receive any payment that would have been given up to the month of the child’s 18th birthday.
