The DWP have announced late on Friday 23 September that most people will receive their £150 cost of living payment next week, rather than this week as had originally been expected.

When the DWP originally announced their timetable for payments they said that they would begin paying from 20 September. 

However, whilst the department claims ‘some people have been paid this week’ Benefits and work has heard from just one person that they have received the payment and the story seems to be the same across many online forums.

The DWP still say that the vast majority of claimants will be paid by early October.

The latest announcement by the DWP was made in their Touchbase newsletter sent out at around 5pm.  It reads:

“Over the next few weeks, six million disabled people in the UK will receive a one-off £150 Disability Cost of Living Payment as part of the Government’s Help for Households support.  Those who had confirmed payment of their disability benefit for 25 May don’t need to do anything and will receive the £150 automatically by their usual payment method, with the vast majority to be paid by early October. While some people have been paid this week, the majority of people will be paid next week. Anyone who is awaiting a payment should therefore wait until early October before getting in touch with the Department.

“Our Disability Cost of Living Payment toolkit for stakeholders includes everything organisations need to communicate the Disability Cost of Living Payment with a range of resources such as easy read information sheets, suggested newsletter and social media copy, FAQs and a British Sign Language information video and wider Help for Households information.” 

Claimants likely to be eligible for the £150 payment are those who, on 25 May, were eligible for:

  • 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.

    I received my first payment whilst in receipt of tax credits. I then had to leave my job in Nov due to very poor health and I have been advised I am not entitled to the second part as I wasn’t claiming uc in May! Absolute joke!! I’ve written to my local MP snd he has raised this with them. Clearly their systems don’t marry up. The DWP should be ashamed of themselves.

    Completed the missing payment form 3/10, finally received a letter today 26/10 (dated 21/10) confirming I am entitled to the payment which will be paid “in due course’.  In the meantime, I’m too scared about paying the gas bill to turn the heating on and I’m sat here freezing day after day - like many others in the same situation. Angry and frustrated are the only words I can use that won’t get me banned from the forum!! 😡😰
