If your ESA payment is due in the week starting 7 January 2019, you might be paid half of it early in the week starting 31 December 2018. The other half of your payment will be paid on the correct day. Your next fortnightly ESA payment will be paid as normal.

Payments over Christmas and New Year
You might get your ESA payment early if it’s due between 24 December 2018 and 2 January 2019.

At least they’ve paid people early rather than forgetting their Christmas bonuses this year!
