Payments should normally be made within 28 days of acceptance. I sorted mine out for payday - you can sort this with Stepchange.
Sharing from experiences of dealing with debt
The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively.

I made as many of my payments, household DD's and the IVA payment within a couple of days of my pay day, so I knew the essentials were paid and what was left was mine for food etc. Most IPs will accept payment according to your needs, but, as Kallis says, the first payment should be made within 28 days of the IVA starting.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.

Hi, I am with StepChange, almost at 4yrs now. Mine was agreed on 17th of the month and as they said they take all their payments on 1st and there wasn't sufficient notice of the direct debit, so I actually didn't pay within 28days. I had a pay month in between where I didn't need to pay my debts or StepChange or the council tax. Then the following month on the 1st it kicked in.
