Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is the 45th and current president of the United States. Before entering politics, he was a businessman and television personality. Trump was born and raised in the New York City borough of Queens, and received a bachelor's degree in economics from the Wharton School.

He owned the Miss Universe and Miss USA beauty pageants from 1996 to 2015, and produced and hosted The Apprentice, a reality television show, from 2003 to 2015.

Millions of people on State Pension, PIP and other benefits due one-off payment before end of this year

Reading now: 646

More than 20 million people across the UK are claiming at least one benefit from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).

That number includes nearly 12.7 million older people in receipt of State Pension payments, a contributory benefit only available to those of retirement age with at least 10 years’ worth of National Insurance Contributions.

However, many people - including new retirees - may not be aware of an annual bonus paid to those on certain benefits before Christmas, which might come in handy during the colder months.

The ‘Christmas Bonus’ is a one-off, tax-free £10 payment made to people in receipt of State Pension or those claiming certain other benefits including Personal Independence Payment (PIP), Attendance Allowance and Carer’s Allowance - if they meet the eligibility criteria during a specific qualifying period, which is typically the first full week in December.
