Second cost of living support payments

The second cost of living support payment of £300 is currently being processed.

Most individuals receiving Department for Works & Pensions benefits will receive their payment of £300 between 31 October and 19 November. Recipients of Tax Credits should be paid between 10th and 19th of November.

Who is eligible?

Households on the following means-tested benefits will receive £900 in three instalments during 2023/24:

You will not receive a payment if you claim the new-style ESA, contributory ESA or new-style JSA, unless you also receive Universal Credit.

To get this autumn’s payment, you must have been entitled (or later found to be entitled) to a payment of one of the means-tested benefits listed above during the period between 18 August and 17 September 2023.

Do you need to claim?

The short answer is no. You don’t need to make a formal claim. If you receive any of the above listed means tested benefits you should automatically receive your £300.

If you believe you should have received a payment and did not, from the 20th November you will be able to report a missing payment online at https://secure.dwp.gov.uk/report-a-missing-cost-of-living-payment/welcome.

To make a non-payment report you will need your National Insurance number.
