Does this still exist? I didn't get it with my Income Support.

Thanks.

If you qualify it should have been added to your first IS payment on or
after 4/12/06. There is/was a fault with the IS computer system which
caused it to forget to pay if a change of circumstances (e.g you moved)
was actioned. That may have been fixed .....

That said you only get one xmas bonus regardless of how many benefits
you get and there is an order of priority (i.e which benefit it should
be paid with) and IS is in the middle somewhere.

Do you receive any other benefits such as IB or DLA? It could have been
paid with them or if they are fourtnightly/four weekly, with your next
payment.

Thanks, Mike. No, I don't get any of the qualifying benefits; I thought IS
was one of them but it is not.

Thanks for the link. IS is not listed as a qualifying benefit (I thought
it
was) which is why I didn't get it.
It used to be till last year, ten they stopped it.

Personally, I think that the Xmas Bonus should apply to all benefits and
should go up in line of inflation.

Won't be long before they stop it, why not an eide or diwali bonus?

OK Cartman, so maybe you're not an expert on other cultures, but can't
you use a search engine?

we do have a "Winter Festival" here in Newcastle,
with the Metro, and various advertising
sites plastered with posters advertising it as such.

You're quite right. I sit corrected. Although clearly people have been
making a lot of this for their own ends.

I do wonder though why the "it's all political correctness gone mad"
brigade think we are a Christian country in the first place:

They only get a million a week - there's probably more observant
Muslims.

The Beano claims a million a week as well:

Cow Pie Festival anyone?

I'd like to wish seasonal greetings to all readers and contributors,
especially Anthony, Mike, Robbie, Andy Pandy and Sue from Darkside.

And I hope you all get the "Winter Festival" presents of your dreams...

Thanks Clive, and all the best to yourself and to all the other
contributors to the group.
