    Are you saying that anyone on IB will be given this bonus? I have not received anything today.
    I USED TO BE INDECISIVE BUT NOW I'M NOT SO SURE!

    Rich people tell you that money doesn't bring you happiness just so the poor people don't feel jealous.

    Anyone who gets the £10 Christmas bonus will get the £60 bonus sometime between January and March. Not everyone has received their money yet, some have some haven't, it seems to be a bit of a lucky dip! Both myself and my husband qualify for it but neither of us has received it yet.

    Great news, I had heard a vague rumour about people on DLA were to receive this but had not had any comfirmation, this is a most welcome surprise.
