Please note, this applies to Jobcentres in England and Wales. In Scotland, 2nd January is also a bank holiday, so offices will be closed and phone lines will only be open for urgent payment enquiries. In all cases when a payment is due on a bank holiday, you should receive your benefits early on the last working day before the bank holiday. Due to public transport limitations and office closures, you should not have a sign-on appointment on a bank holiday and should not be asked to visit a Jobcentre office in person then. Contact your local Jobcentre to confirm the Christmas opening times first.
