By November 19th, eight million people receiving means-tested benefits, including Universal Credit, will get £300 straight into their bank accounts without having to submit a claim. This is the second installment out of three that will come to £900 in total. All beneficiaries will get direct payment into their bank accounts if they qualify, and fraudsters are being alerted to the possibility that they may try to deceive victims into providing personal information. Payments are being made to some populations to assist with rising expenditures, such as:
