    Universal Credit claimants don't get a £10 Xmas bonus (unless they also get a benefit that does give rise to a bonus).
    https://www.gov.uk/christmas-bonus/eligibility
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

     but like calcotti mentioned, you have to claim UC plus one of the other benefits listed, such as PIP.
    That's not quite correct. UC doesn't qualify anyone to the Christmas bonus. If they claim other benefits such as PIP/DLA/ESA etc etc then they will be entitled to it. You do not need to be claiming UC and/or any other benefits.

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    hI @poppy123456 - I've just realised thats pretty much what you've said :D I think I've understood it wrong from what it's read.

    Yes, you've misunderstood it. If someone is just claiming UC they will not be entitled to the bonus. PIP/State pension/Carers allowance/DLA etc etc all qualify you.

    Your partner is entitled to the £10 because they claim PIP. You're not entitled to it because of your UC claim because this doesn't entitle you to it. It can be paid anytime throughout this month. https://www.gov.uk/christmas-bonus/eligibility

    You working doesn't affect it. Your partner claims PIP which is why they are entitled to it.

    It's normally paid when you get the monthly payment. Dose this make sense?

    I mean why even bother mention UC if it's nothing to do with getting the payment. 
    UC isn’t mentioned in the eligibility criteria. 
    It's normally paid when you get the monthly payment. Dose this make sense? 
    That’s not correct either because the Xmas bonus has nothing to do with a UC claim. 
    If someone claims PIP then the £10 is likely to be paid as a separate payment. My daughter claims both PIP and UC and she received hers a couple of days ago as a separate payment. 
    If they claim other benefits such as ESA/JSA or carers allowance then it could be paid in with your usual payments.
