Prisoners on remand - Introduction
Check what benefits you can get if you are a prisoner on remand
Entitlement to most benefits ceases or is suspended while you are on remand.
Most benefits are paid in arrears, so you may be owed some benefits payments. You should inform the office that pays your benefit of your change of circumstances and request the arrears be paid to you or sent to someone who is managing your money.
