However, while it is important to note the deadline for claims, Christmas payment dates are equally as vital to bear in mind.

Universal Credit is set to be paid early due to a series of bank holidays for many people who usually receive the sum on a certain date.

If a payment is due on Christmas Day, December 25, then Britons can expect to be paid a day earlier, on December 24 instead.

This year, Boxing Day falls on a weekend, meaning claimants scheduled to be paid on December 26, will also receive payment on December 24.
