Payments of Housing Benefit
If you are a Six Town Housing tenant, payments of Housing Benefit will be made weekly to your rent account.
If you are a tenant of a housing association or a private landlord, we normally pay your benefit 4 weeks in arrears. Payments are made directly into your bank account, and the money will usually be available 2 working days after we send it out.

|Friday 25 December 2020||Tuesday 29 December 2020|
If you have made a new claim we will make a one off payment when your claim is assessed to bring you into line with the payment cycle, so you do not have to wait until the next regular 4 weekly payment date.
A payment calendar for 2020-21 is available below.
