Do you have a post office card account for your benefits payments?

If you have a post office account –  from November 2022 you will no longer be able to have your benefits including child benefit, tax credits, universal credit or state pension payments paid into a Post Office card account.

The Department for Work and Pensions will also contact all customers receiving benefits in the coming weeks asking where they would like to receive benefit payments by November 2022. This can be through an existing bank account that you might already have or by setting up a new account with a bank, building society or credit union.

Benefits or state pension payments will not stop, and payment dates will not change. If you need any support to set up a new account, please get in touch with us and we can help. More information is also available on the Post Office’s website.
