Changing an entitlement period


Normally, a change in entitlement period (1.1.E.125) will result from a change in payment delivery day (1.1.D.55).

Where a recipient has had a change in their payment delivery day, they will be paid an adjustment payment (1.1.A.65) in order to get them onto a new payment cycle. The adjustment payment will usually be for a period of less than 14 days, consisting of the number of days since the end of the previous entitlement period to the end of the new entitlement period.
