I received a letter from DWP telling me I shall have a £10 bonus because of my PIP. I’ve been planning all year on what to spend it on.
I vaguely remember the bonus being introduced for pensioners and looked it up. 1972. Enough then to buy a good Christmas Dinner and have money left over. The amount hasn’t changed since then. It would be worth about £100 now if it had kept up with inflation.
I’m not ungrateful, it’s just another thing that probably costs more to administer than it’s worth.
What are you going to fritter yours on? ❄️
