    According to this link, post offices are open on both days you've mentioned, so it should be no problem.

    Neither are public holidays so I assume Post Offices (I assume this is where you collect your payment) would still be open, although I would assume if there were any changes over the holiday season you would be adviced by your local welfare office.

    Your dole is paid in advance befor Christmas. You get one week double dole, the next week nothing

    Is this true? Can I expect to get double on the 21st and then nothing on the 28th?
