Cold Weather payments

You could get a Cold Weather Payment if you are in receipt of certain benefits. You would then receive a payment if the average temperature in your area is recorded as, or forecast to be, zero degrees celsius or below over 7 consecutive days. If you qualify, you’ll get £25 for each 7 day period of very cold weather between 1 November and 31 March. The Cold Weather Payment scheme runs from 1 November 2023 to 31 March 2024.
