National Grid typically pays dividends twice a year, announced with the full and half year results in May and November respectively. The dividend announced at the half year is an interim dividend and typically paid in January. The dividend announced at the full-year is a final dividend and, subject to shareholders approval at the AGM (usually in July), is typically paid in August. 

We offer ordinary shareholders the opportunity to receive new ordinary shares instead of a cash dividend through the Scrip Dividend Scheme.
