    They should pay you the day before, just be prepared for the longer gap between payments. Often it doesn't show up online until they start processing it, so 2 days before it's due to arrive in your account, which makes things difficult. A letter went out (I think it was a letter) explaining that they are paying everyone ahead of holidays, and what date your payment would be received depending on when you were usually paid.

    Did you double check the date? It's not the tuesday before christmas? Just a thought because some get stuffed around a bit!

    Otherwise you probably have it showing now as Tues because it's the first business day after your due, but it should still arrive before hand. It might not show up online though until this coming Tuesday if it's being paid thursday instead.

    Default sorry to crash thread

    Just out of curiosity, when you applied for the pension, how long did it take to be approved and what is the process????

    I'm meant to be paid on Mondays usually (but it always comes in on the Saturday) but my next payment will be made on Thursday 24th December. So early for me too.
