Default £10 Xmas Bonus and Carer's Allowance

I understand that while I am in receipt of Carer's Allowance I am entitled to the £10 xmas bonus, does anybody know when this payment is issued, I understand it may be included with my payment week commencing the 5th December. Is this correct?

Thanks

I get DLA and have not had my bonus yet although some people have had theres already..

i did hear that the majority like you said are getting paid starting 5th december and i recieved mine last year on the 7th december last year with my normal DLA payment going in a week later,i know yours is carers allowance but i think they might be paid the same time..

hope this helps

Last year I think my CA Christmas bonuns was paid on the first Monday of December. I collect mine weekly from the Post Office, so it might be different if you have the money paid into the bank.

As for Dognobs rather rude comment - yes, most carers have been good this year, enabling disabled and ill people to live a reasonable life with dignity, as well as saving this country billions of pounds. If you reseent this, then you are one very sad character. Go and play elsewhere.

Do you also receive Carer's Allowance? Is it paid to you weekly in advance as mine is?

Thanks for the reply

What you should have said is Dear Mr Cameron I work for OVER 35 HOURS PER WEEK (so maximum of £1.58 an hour) all year long caring and save the government a fortune don't you think you ought to increase the derisory £10 to actually mean somthing?

Its backbreadking being a carer and I say thanks to all the carers out there - have a merry christmas - no day off for carers I am afraid though!
