If you claim benefits, you may be entitled to an extra £10 christmas bonus this year.

The Christmas Bonus is a one-off tax-free £10 payment made before Christmas, paid to people who get certain benefits in the qualifying week. This is normally the first full week of December. You do not need to claim – you should get paid automatically and it will not affect any other benefits you get.

All benefits, pensions and allowances are normally paid into your bank account. It may show up as ‘DWP XB’ on your bank statement.

You do not need to claim the bonus – you should get it automatically.

If you think you should get it, but have not, contact the Jobcentre Plus office that deals with your payments or the Pension Service.
