Which payments qualify for a Government bonus?
Payments made directly from you qualify for a bonus. For example payments made by direct transfer, debit card or cheque (up to £4,000 per year) and transfers in from another account or provider.
When is the Government bonus paid?
If you opened a Lifetime ISA between 6 April 2017 and 5 April 2018, the bonus was paid as a one off lump sum in the early part of the 2018/19 tax year. From 6 April 2018 onwards, payments that are received by the 5th of each month will receive a bonus payment after the 19th of that month.
