Not sure if this this relevant for this forum, but I've noticed that on my tax credits online there is a section that gives you your next 8 payments bit one payment Is highlighted blue saying one off payment I've never seen this can anyone tell me if this means I get my normal pay plus the one that's highlighted? I remember an old friend getting the same information on thertheres about 1 year ago 🤔 thanks in advance.

    Hi Claire,

    When is the payment due that's highlighted blue? As it's the new tax year then it could be to do with your payments changing. Tax credits work on your income for the previous year. On my online account it gives all of my payments and the exact dates, it should be the same for yours too. So you can work out by the dates if it's an extra payment or not.

      As it was only £2 more and your other payments are the same then i wouldn't worry. Only HMRC can answer your question really Claire.

      The only bank that changed their weekend payment system is Natwest. The rest remain the same. I bank with them, that's how i know. Money no longer gets paid on a Saturday, if you bank with them it's a Monday now.

      All your future payments will be stated on your online account. If there's not an extra payment stated then there won't be an extra payment.

      No problem but You are really confusing me with your questions about this. It always states on your online account all of your future payment dates and amounts due. If there's an extra payment date it's an extra payment, if there's not an extra date with a payment there won't be an extra payment.

      The new tax year has started so anything extra could be from that. Renewal packs are sent out between April and July and if you don't respond by 31st July your payments will stop.

      What's confusing you is the fact it says extra payment. What they mean is there's  £2 extra in your money for this week. There is no extra payment as such because your money will be paid next week, like it is every week and on the same day. Your payments will be made as it states on your HMRC account. They do like to confuse people with they way the do these things. lol
