Royal Mail have written to me about their Christmas Stamp scheme which will assist customers in receipt of Pension Credit, Employment and Support Allowance or Incapacity Benefit to purchase stamps in the run-up to Christmas.
The scheme will run from 6 November until 24 December and it will enable customers to purchase a total of 36 first and second class stamps at last year’s prices. The stamps can be purchased in any mixture of first and second class and can only be purchased in a single transaction. The offer will be administered at all 11,800 Post Office branches across the UK.
To be eligible, customers will need to be in receipt of Pension Credit, Employment and Support Allowance or Incapacity Benefit. To purchase the stamps, customers will need to show proof of receipt of these benefits; either a letter from the Department for Work and Pensions or a Post Office Card Account statement.
Customers will also need to bring in the voucher found on the reverse of a leaflet regarding the scheme that has been sent to every household in the UK.
