It depends on what SW payment you're on.

Most schemes will pay a double week in the next week or so.

Payments due around Christmas itself will usually be issued in advance of their normal date.

There will be notices in the Post Offices to advise you of payment collection dates.

The Christmas bonus is gone - the double week is just 2 weeks' payments rolled into one.

So, if I receive Supplementary Welfare Allowance on a Friday usually in the post office, will I receive a double week this Friday or will I have to pick it up on Tuesday the 22nd?

Similarly (asking for a friend), if he receives Illness Benefit into the bank on a Tuesday will he receive a double week this Tuesday or will his Illness Benefit be paid into the bank as normal on Tuesday the 22nd?

adrie, SWA will pay a double week this week (Friday) which is for this week and next week.

Your next payment will be in the PO on 30th/31st Dec (just can't remember which date) as the post offices will be closed on Friday 1 Jan.

Illness Benefit payments will also double-up, he should get 2 weeks tomorrow. The payment due on Tue 29th may be lodged early as the banks will be closed on that date - the lodgement may be made on Xmas Eve.
