The government announced on 17th November 2022 a series of new cost of living payments to help millions of households across the country mitigate soaring inflation and ever-increasing energy bills
This would be further support for the most vulnerable households, with further cost of living payments worth up to £1,350.
This includes £900 to households on certain means-tested benefits, including Universal Credit, Tax Credits and Pension Credit. (see below)
Another £150 would go to people on disability benefits including Personal Independence Payment.
And it would give another £300 to pensioner households who already receive a Winter Fuel Payment.
