Default Benefit payment dates over Christmas/New Year?

Just wondered if anyone has a list of dates for DWP payments over Christmas and New Year?

I've spotted the ones on HMRC website for Child Benefit, but not for stuff like DLA, ESA, InCap etc.

The 21s is the last banking day before Christmas so payments due on all bank holidays over Christmas will be made by the 21st and the 28th is the last bank day before new years day

Could well be different dates this year since my last signing I was told they would be confirming/telling me about the dates for next signing and payments then.

Though it might make sense for it to be the last working day before the holiday, usually these are all set out for the year and you can access them online via one of the government websites, no such tables on the .gov site for some reason.
