Almost 1 in 4 families will receive the means-tested benefit and 1 in 10 will receive a disability supplement of £150.

If you qualify for both payments, you should receive a total of £800 to help cover the cost of living, plus an additional £400 to help pay your energy bills this winter, which are due in September .

You can get a lump sum payment of £150 if you qualify for any of the following:

Constant attendance allowance

Disability living allowance for adults

Living allowance for children with disabilities

Payment for personal independence

Payment for Disabled Adults (in Scotland)

Disabled Child Payment (in Scotland)

Armed Forces Independence Payment

War pension mobility supplement

When will I receive the disability cost of living payment?

If you qualify, you will receive payment starting in September. Payments will be made to people who get a qualifying disability from the DWP before payments to people who get a qualifying benefit from the Department of Defense.

Payment of cost of living for retirees

If you are entitled to a winter fuel payment for the winter of 2022 to 2023, you will receive an additional £300 for your cleaning paid with your normal payment from November. This is in addition to any cost of living payments you receive with your benefit or tax credits.

The total amount of winter fuel payment you will receive for winter 2022 to 2023 depends on your situation. These amounts are for winter 2022 to 2023 only.
