ok thanks will tell him it's just late .

We will make automatic payments over a number of weeks from early November 2008 until Christmas 2008.

If you have not received your automatic payment by Christmas 2008 you should call the office that pays your benefit or call the Winter Fuel Payment Helpline 08459 15 15 15.

Hope this helps.

Some people don't realise that it has been paid into a bank account rather than getting the old style Giro like they used to. Get him to check accounts before contacting DWP as its stressfull enough without sitting through the long automated menus.
