    • Pension credit
    • income support
    • income-based job seekers allowance
    • income-related employment and support allowance
    • Universal Credit

    If you qualify and you are in the designated postcode areas you should recieve £25 alongside your next benefit payment.

    If you don’t receive your Cold Weather Payment

    Tell your pension centre or Jobcentre Plus office if you think you should have received a Cold Weather Payment but you haven’t.
