Cold Weather Payments set to return next month – check your eligibility


Those on Support for Mortgage Interest may be eligible for the payment if they have a severe or enhanced disability premium, a pension premium or a child who is disabled.

People on Child Tax Credit may also qualify, if it includes a disability or severe disability element, as well as those who have a child under five living with them.

There is no need to apply as the payment is made automatically, although people can contact the Pension Service or Jobcentre Plus if they think they should have received a Cold Weather Payment.

The support will be a welcome boost to many families on low incomes, as energy bills are increasing this month to an average £2,500 a year.
