Does anyone know what date people on ESA get paid just before Christmas? If I remember right it always goes really weird with payments around Christmas time... Cheers in advance!

That's still a bit confusing, it doesn't say which benefits. I'm sure different ones are paid on different days.

i`m sure it`ll be fine, are you sure it wasn`t money you were owed rather than your regular payment?
