    A lot of people haven't received theirs, my flatmate included (he's never had 1). The advice i got given was to contact the JC+. A few people have also got 2 apparently.

    I got mine from DLA and i did get a letter 1st saying it would be paid into my account. My flatmate who is on ESA has not received a letter or money.
    Know what you mean about the principle.
    there quick to try and take our money off us so we need to get every penny we're entitled to.

    If on IR ESA then I don't think people can get the Christmas bonus https://www.gov.uk/christmas-bonus/eligibility

    Eligibility
    To get a Christmas Bonus you must be present or ‘ordinarily resident’ in the UK, Channel Islands, Isle of Man, Gibraltar, any European Economic Area (EEA) country, or Switzerland during the qualifying week.

    You must also get at least one of the following benefits in the ‘qualifying week’ - this is normally the first full week of December:

    Attendance Allowance
    Carer’s Allowance
    Constant Attendance Allowance (paid under Industrial Injuries or War Pensions schemes)
    Contribution-based Employment and Support Allowance (once the main phase of the benefit is entered after the first 13 weeks of claim)
    Disability Living Allowance
    Incapacity Benefit at the long-term rate
    Industrial Death Benefit (for widows or widowers)
    Mobility Supplement
    Pension Credit - the guarantee element
    State Pension (including Graduated Retirement Benefit)
    Severe Disablement Allowance (transitionally protected)
    Unemployability Supplement or Allowance (paid under Industrial Injuries or War Pensions schemes)
    War Disablement Pension at State Pension age

    You don't get it if you're on IR ESA. Which I've always found strange as you do get it for CB ESA.
