Universal Credit: What time does Universal Credit get paid?

Universal Credit is usually paid straight into a bank, building society or credit union account.

Your payment has to be paid into an account with your name, and will need to be a current account as opposed to a savings account.

If you do not have an account, the Money Advice Service can help you to set one up and choose an account that’s right for you.

Depending on your bank, the funds are usually available sometime after midnight on the day the payment is due.
