    I've also looked again this morning (last looked a few days ago) and one is showing as payable for 6-13 February.

    Nothing in bank yet but having had one CWP previously it can take a little time.

    They usually make them pretty quickly once announced, so if that postcode check says that you are due one then check your bank balance.[/QUOTE]

    Pretty Quick? Within 14 working days, ah well. The first one this year took 10 working days.....

    It varies;

    Sometimes it is paid with your next benefit payment, sometimes they will pay it seperately.

    I'm only guessing, but I believe that depends on how many they have to pay in any week.
    Limitations set by the banking system mean that they can only make so many extra/emergency payments outside of the regular payments.

    We also have one due for 7th to 13th Feb. I expect that most of the country will have one due for last week and so it will probably be in your next regular benefit payment.
    I don't know everything. - But I'm good at searching for, and finding, stuff.
