The comments from people who have not received their £150 disability cost of living payment have slowed to a trickle, so we’re now asking if you have received your second cost of living payment.
The target for payments was between 8 and 23 November, except for tax credit claimants who should be paid between 23 and 30 November.
The second cost of living payment is the £324 sum that follows on from the £326 that was paid in July 2022.
You may get a payment if you receive any of the following benefits:
- Universal Credit
- income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA)
- income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)
- Income Support
- Pension Credit
- Child Tax Credit
- Working Tax Credit
You will not get a payment if you get New Style Employment and Support Allowance, contributory Employment and Support Allowance, or New Style Jobseeker’s Allowance, unless you get Universal Credit.
For UC you will be eligible if you were entitled to a payment (or later found to be entitled to a payment) of Universal Credit for an assessment period that ended in the period 26 August 2022 to 25 September 2022.
For income-based JSA, income-based ESA, Income Support and Pension Credit you will be eligible if
you were entitled to a payment (or later found to be entitled to a payment) of income-based JSA, income-related ESA, Income Support or Pension Credit for any day in the period 26 August 2022 to 25 September 2022.
The same page also says that if you don’t receive your payment you can complete the missing payments form here.
At the time of writing the missing payments form page actually says that it is for the £150 payment, but hopefully they will update that information soon.
Let us know in the comments section below whether you have received your payment or not.
