Christmas Bonus Double Payment To Issue This week.

Christmas Bonus double payment to issue this week.

This year (2022), the annual Christmas Bonus will be 100% of a persons normal weekly payment. The Christmas Bonus will not include Fuel Allowance.

If you were getting 2 eligible social welfare payments (for example, a One-Parent Family Payment and the Domiciliary Care Allowance or a half-rate Carer’s Allowance as well as your primary payment) you get the Christmas Bonus for both payments.

For Domiciliary Care Allowance (DCA), which is paid monthly, the bonus is 100% of the weekly DCA rate. The DCA portion of the bonus is calculated independently of other payments. So, for example, if you are getting full-rate DCA for one child, 100% of the weekly rate is €71.20.

A Christmas Bonus is paid to people getting long-term social welfare payments. You will be paid a Christmas Bonus, if you are getting:
