Thankyou for reply,

 

I did ring and ask them if it would definitely affect me and they couldnt answer, they just told me to ask work to not ever pay me early and stick to the 28th.

 

I work for the NHS and I have asked them about it but I doubt they will be able to help. I did ask a few close colleagues that I know are on universal credit but they both said there assessment periods mean they have never had 2 payments in one period.

I get paid a week early over christmas so my first month with no money would be January – I cant see a way that I can budget in 2 months to cover myself for this one so not really sure what to do.

The next is July so hopefully in would of been able to cover myself by then.
