DWP issues 'pay early' code for all benefits in February 2024

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has shared the special code they’ll use to pay benefits early this month. Due to the leap year, claimants will receive payments earlier than usual in February.

Your National Insurance number determines when you get your state pension. If the last two digits are between 00 and 19, you’re paid on a Monday.

If they’re between 20 and 39, it’s Tuesday, and if they’re between 40 and 59, it’s Wednesday. Numbers 60 to 79 are paid on Thursday and numbers 80 to 99 are usually paid on Fridays.

Those who are normally paid on the 30 or 31 of the month will be paid on the last working day of the month, which is Thursday, February 29. If your payment date falls on a weekend, it will be sent to your account on the working day before.
