184.108.40.206 Entitlement period - an overview
This is the period over which a recipient's entitlement will accrue. It is usually 14 days. For most recipients, their entitlement period (1.1.E.125) will end 2 working days before their delivery day (1.1.D.55). For recipients receiving a benefit other than benefit PPP their entitlement period will end one working day before their payment delivery day. This different treatment is necessary for current payment processing reasons.
Act reference: SSAct section 23(1)-'social security benefit'
When can entitlement periods be for periods of less than 14 days?
