    Yes, you are entitled to it. It will be paid at some point but i can't tell you when exactly i'm afriad.

    How to claim

    You do not need to claim the Christmas Bonus - you should get it automatically.

    If you think you should get it, but have not by 1 January, contact the Jobcentre Plus office that deals with your payments or the Pension Service.
