Pensioners: East Sussex

Volume 491: debated on Monday 20 April 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how many pensioners resident in (a) Eastbourne and (b) East Sussex have not yet received their Christmas bonus from his Department. (267246)

By 15 March 2009, 15.3 million scheduled additional Christmas bonus payments of £60 had been paid to pensioners and other eligible recipients. It is possible that a small number of customers may not have received their payment. Therefore exceptionally, some payments may need to be made clerically.

An exercise to identify the very small number of qualifying customers who have not yet received their payment is being undertaken.
