What if I am not paid by BACs transfer?

If you are paid by a regular bank transfer you should get your funds straight away (subject to successful checks).

Most benefits are usually paid by direct credit transfer straight into an account. This includes:

• benefits from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) including Universal Credit
• housing benefits
• tax credits
• child benefit
• guardian’s allowance

Please note that a Council Tax Reduction is usually paid by a reduction in your Council Tax bill. Housing Benefit may be paid by a reduction in your rent if you are a local authority tenant, and it is sometimes paid direct to your landlord in other circumstances. Otherwise your local council will usually pay your Housing Benefit by cheque or into an account. If you ask them, some councils will agree to pay you by cheque instead.
