TOPIC: Christmas Bonus

Christmas Bonus 3 weeks 18 hours ago #174058

:woohoo:

Hi all

Anyone know when they might condescend to pay it this year, as in before or after Christmas?

Also, is the £30 reduction in ESA announced on BBC yesterday for new claimants only?

Have needed to considerably reduce stress levels for a while so only occasionally dip in and out of B&W site, so forgive me if I've repeated already covered topics.

Feel I need to increase my contact with B&W again in light of the threatened changes to those in Support Group in 2017. Like so many like me, after hard fought battle got SG til March 2019 but I suspect that's now irrelevant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's supposed to be paid in the first payment of an applicable benefit after the first week of December, if that makes sense :)

Nothing on this board constitutes legal advice - always consult a professional about specific problems

Many thanks Gordon........makes the usual DWP sense.

Just a thought, anyone ever thought of compiling a DWP DICTIONARY?
Ha, Ha!

Kind regards
