    I thought the annual Child Benefit increase had just been brought forward from April to January, so we've already had it.

    Is SMP going up as well then?? That would be great as my 6 weeks at 90% finished last week and I start on crappy SMP as from this week!

    Payments over bank holidays
    From time to time, your normal payment day may fall on the same day as a bank holiday. This will often be a Monday, but not always. When this happens, you'll get your payment on the last working day before the bank holiday. So if the bank holiday is on a Monday, you'll get your payment on the Friday before.

    This happens for all tax credits payments across the whole of the UK, even if a bank holiday only applies in one part of the UK. For example, Monday 13 July 2009 is only a bank holiday in Northern Ireland. But all tax credits customers in the UK who are usually paid on a Monday will get their payment on Friday 10 July 2009.

    You can check the table below to see if your payments will be affected by bank holidays. And if they will be, you can see the date when you should get paid.
