188.8.131.52 Timing of Payment Delivery
Recipients paid a social security benefit, other than PPP usually have their payments made to their accounts the day after the end of their entitlement period.
The difference in the timing of delivery of payments is a result of the processing requirements of financial institutions and the Government's requirement that the payment delivery for social security benefits should not be reduced. Prior to payment cycles, benefits other than PPP, were delivered on the following working day. Payments can only be delivered on a weekday, not Saturday or Sunday.
