Mine has always been paid as a separate £10 first week of December.
Not had it this year. Despite two letters recently as a change in ESA rates (social fund payments stopped) both letters said would be paid 1st week of December.
I'm on contribution and income related ESA so do get the £10 bonus. I'm also getting the underlying carers premium of £34 per week.I called today to ask about Xmas bonus to be told it could be paid anytime until January - don't believe this, although spoke to several numpties at the DWP over the last week and all have given me incorrect information!
Several people I know on ESA have not had it either but people I know on PIP have, it was paid 4th December for them!
I think there has been a screw up somewhere. I've given up trying to make sense of DWP staff on phone. I've been overpaid £120 this week but I've spent more time queuing to talk to people that actually talking, so decided to write to them to ask them to take there overpayment back!!!!
