Delay in processing benefits

Once all relevant information has been received, we are aiming to process:

  • all new claims in an average of 20 working days
  • changes in circumstances in an average of 15 working days.

It may be up to a month before we can respond to your claim or changes to claims you have reported. You may find useful support in our Cost of Living guide.
