Cold Weather Payments

You may get a Cold Weather Payment from Central Government if you are getting certain benefits.

You will recieve payment if the average temperature in your area is recorded as, or forecast to be, zero degrees celsius or below for 7 consecutive days.

You don’t need to apply. If you’re eligible for a Cold Weather Payment, you will be paid it automatically.

You will recieve a payment for each 7 day period of very cold weather between 1 November and 31 March.

To find out if you are eligible for Cold Weather Payments or have not recieved your Cold Weather Payments please visit the GOV.UK website.

Please note the Council does not administer these payments.
