yeah i received it couple of weeks ago. It's paid directly into your bank account, (if you get your benefits paid into an account)

You will get it eventually, I wouldn't bother phoning to ask them when you will be getting it, as they have already given you a letter telling you that you are getting it.

I know that it is only 10.00 but the cost of telephoning is going to exceed the 10.00 I would just sit back and wait.

when I called they said they do them in batches starting from the beginning of December. I got mine added into my ESA payment last week so you'll probably get yours in your next payment.

There are two types of ESA and the Christmas Bonus is only paid with the Contribution Based type, and then only once the person is in the main phase of the benefit.
