The DWP have announced that the one-off, £150 cost of living payment will be paid to a range of disability benefit claimants from 20 September, with the “vast majority” getting paid by the beginning of October.

The £150 is being paid on top of other cost of living payments totalling £650, £400 for all households to help with energy bills, and an extra £150 for properties in Council Tax bands A-D in England.

Over eight million eligible households in receipt of one of a range of means-tested benefit received the first of two automatic cost of living payments of £326 from 14 July. The second means-tested payment of £324 will be issued later this year.

Claimants likely to be eligible for the £150 payment are those in receipt of:

  • Disability Living Allowance,
  • Personal Independence Payment,
  • Attendance Allowance,
  • Adult Disability Payment (Scotland),
  • Child Disability Payment (Scotland),
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment,
  • Constant Attendance Allowance,
  • War Pension Mobility Supplement.

Those who had confirmed payment of their disability benefit for 25 May are expected to be paid shortly after the payment window opens.

For those awaiting confirmation of their disability benefits on 25 May, or who are waiting to be assessed for eligibility to receive disability benefits, the process may take longer but payments will still be automatic.

Full details of eligibility for the £150 cost of living payment are on the .gov.uk website.

    I haven't received any extra payments at all. I've been on pip since March. It looks like I should have had the £600 as well as £150 and didn't know anything about it as I was too ill at time

      @Gary They can't stop anyone's benefits without a reason unless they suspect something even then they would investigate,  go to your citizens advice or your council usually have a welfare rights officer in the town hall.

      @James Purcell 17.10.1958 Still haven't received mine yet, but now found out they've stopped my benefits altogether with no reason so now being hounded for arrears of rent etc. My only income is state pension and standard PIP. It's disgusting how they can treat us like we don't exist.
