Child Tax creditIncome SupportChild Benefit - early payments?

nikkiandmidgetsnikkiandmidgets

Hi does anyone know if Child Benefit and child Tax Credits were scheduled to pay early? Just it looks like I have received my Child benefit a week early (might have miscalculated dates - will have to check old bank statement), and my child tax credit 3 days early - usually get on a Friday but its now for £4 less - got my new statement which they automatically issue when you change address today, and future payments are now about £4 less than they were although my circumstances havent changed...bit annoyed as I had a direct debit which bounced ( I got a letter in at end of previous week to say it had failed), and which they said I would have to contact company to organise payment, successfully came off today and now I guess I amn't due any money till monday and need to put money in electric meter, get nappies and wipes for night times for kids etc....wish I had cancelled it as soon as I got the letter to say it had bounced but thought it usually said in letter if the bank were going to try again, or that the company would contact you if they were going to retry? CAB advised me to cancel all non essential payments and then to dig out all my PPI etc info on them (The one that came off is an Egg Loan from years ago when I was married and before kids came along!), incase I am covered, cos will have to renegotiate payment plans with them due to me not working...

    Do you think there is any chance DWP have given me an extra payment through some balls up and thats why they have reduced my payments by £4 a week? Child Tax Credit that is....probably just miscalculated the child Benefit date....

    You should ring Tax Credits to see whether it was an extra payment. Search for tax credits here for the number http://saynoto0870.com/
    It is strange though that my partner actually got a lump sum in her account last week and then normal payments at about £4 a week less from tax credits because she had phoned up to let them know a change of circumstances. They reassess your account whenever you notify them of any change. Ring them tomorrow and you might be surprised.

    Hope so...would be nice to know I am still getting a payment on Friday - especially at this time of year! Though have to get my finger out as I read about Egg getting fined for PPI misselling earlier though may have missed the boat on that as I am sure I brought that up with them before and they told me that they hadnt missold me, so if I wanted it removed that they would have to redo the loan application and hinted that I could end up paying more based on my change in circumstances, so not sure if i can appeal again if I balked at their first mail back last time....will have to get onto MSE and CAG websites and get the ball rolling....

    Im not sure this is correct - will check tomorrow. I think they could be paid Tuesday.. The reason being that Most POs close early on Wednesdays and there wouldnt be time to pay out everythiing for the 25th and 26th in one morning on the Wednesday.

    So that will should mean my payments for the Xmas and new year fridays should be paid early as I am in Scotland so both are public holidays...handy to know as means I can stock up in advance if I can persuade my sister to take me the 30 mile round trip to tescos cos I only have an electron card and i would guess all the delivery slots for Asda and tesco will be filled by now...actually I think I will go online and check just now!

    It is for payments paid directly into bank accounts

    Just re-read the statement from CTC and says a payment on 15rg of xx and ten after that get payment of xy usually paid every Friday so looking good for me getting another payment on Friday...looks like for some weird reason I got an extra payment which has reduced all my other payments by £4? Wish my brain worked better just now, hate the fact I go into panic mode first but good I can come on here for advice as dont like stressing family out, especially at xmas! And helps if you read things properly - I just presumed the first payment was the Friday and didnt calculate what day 15th was when I got statement from DWP this morning, and only checked my bank just now and saw Egg had come back in and been successful!

    Guess its time to chuck some stuff on gumtree though as me and kids badly need a haircut and mobile hairdresser poster which was in local somerfield wasnt there today or else I will look wonderful in the Xmas photos as at moment my hairstyle resembles the mcdonalds clown when the wind catches it (LOL! Hair needs thinned out and de-ended as not been done for about 3 months)although I bet my GHD's could make it look reasonable enough if I cant get one that will do a dry cut as wet cuts take too long when you have toddlers with you! My mum did offer to trim it so i guessed then it must be looking worse than i realised!
