Hi,

 

The £10 Christmas bonus for ESA was paid in to Bank Accounts at the beginning of this month.

 

Check your statements online to see if this has been paid in, if not give them a ring and listen to a horrible version of the four seasons!

 

Stigman

NEVER telephone a DCA

If a DCA rings you, refuse to go through the security questions & hang up!

Hi

 

 

My husbands DLA is due on the 24th Dec so expect the £10 then but as regards his ESA he hasn't received the £10. He had a payment on the 13th Dec for the normal amount and the next payment is due on the 27th Dec.

 

 

He is in receipt of ESA (CB) and is in the Support Group. Does that make any difference

 

 

Thanks

Joanne

The £10.00 is paid as a separate payment, usually 1st week in December !

Yep, very happy with my BT price plan. Means I never have to worry about phoning the DWP as it's always a free call.

My £10 bonus was paid with the normal ESA on Dec 6th. You only get one £10 payment, no matter how many benefits you have. I did check, in case they had felt generous, when my DLA went into the bank on the 10th...

 

Just to add to 0845 call costs, I'm on Virgin Media cable for my home phone. It's 11.24p connection charge plus 10.22p per minute, unless you're on a talk plan that includes 0845 calls, on they only do it on the most expensive plan. I made a call to the DWP in March, about my ESA, and was charged £6.45 for one call.

Unless it was for 2 different people, they'll be asking for it back once they realise... See https://www.gov.uk/christmas-bonus

That's disgust of Virgin 11.24p connection charge plus 10.22p per minute :evil:

Tell me about it ! Detailed on P6 of http://store.virginmedia.com/content/dam/eSales/Downloads/011113%20Residential%20Cable%20V1.pdf

 

To add to the insult, when I first called the DWP the lady I spoke to INSISTED that calls to their 0845 number were free, or I would not have called it. Bearing that in mind, the DWP refunded the cost of the call and I now have a VOIP service active where I pay only 3p a minute to 0845. I'll not make the same mistake again.

No it wasnt for 2 people it was for me, showed up on Bank Account as DLA £10 and an extra £10 added to my Esa, both was paid on 3rd December, am sure DWP will be in touch if I have been overpaid lol..... I thought it to be strange when I received a letter from DLA stating they would be paying me the £10 bonus as I have never received it before in the last 20 years. I have always received the bonus from firstly invalidity benefit then incapacity benefit and then more recently from Esa....
