Update: missing second 2023 £300 Cost of Living Payment

The second 2023 £300 Cost of Living Payment should have been paid between 31 October and 19 November 2023.  The DWP claim that 99% had been paid by 7 November and that all the rest would be paid by 19 November.  But, at the deadline, we are still hearing from people who have not had theirs.

Details of who is eligible are available here.

If you still haven't received your payment, you can use this online form from 20 November 2023 to report it.

Previous cost of living payments

The DWP have published an online form to report missing Cost of Living payments from earlier this year.

The form covers:

The  £301 paid between 25 April 2023 and 17 May 2023 for most eligible claimants.

You can use the form to report either of these payments as missing, although if you want to report both as missing you will have to complete the form twice.

You will need your national insurance number in order to complete the form.

    I haven't had my payment either, it's almost as if they know as its the last payment for the cost of living they can just make people wait longer to annoy you, that and universal credit is a flipping disgrace but you if you post your opinion on your online journal they send you letters warning you about this, they need investigating.

    Very strange I was on esa contribution last year and on housing benefit and got the COL up until oct but at the end of October I became a full state pensioner  and have not got the Feb payment. As It was only housing benefit that I was on this is the only thing that could have allowed me it in 2023 so I am puzzled by it.
