If you claim Employment and Support Allowance, Incapacity Benefit or Pension Credit you can buy up to 36 First and Second Class stamps at last year’s prices. From 6 November until Christmas Eve, you can purchase First Class stamps for 46p and Second Class stamps for just 36p.
In order to take advantage of this offer, you will need to take proof of eligibilty when purchasing stamps. This can be a letter from the Department of Work and Pensions, or if your benefits are paid into a Post Office Card Account, take your card statement with you. Royal Mail has been leafleting homes about the scheme since early October.
