This is the date on which retirees will receive the extra Christmas pay

This is the case of those that are prorated in 12 payments, as in the case of pensions for permanent disability that respond to an accident at work or occupational disease. This is reflected in article 46 of Royal Legislative Decree 8/20145, which regulates the current General Social Security Law.
