When is the next cost of living payment due?

Here is the schedule the government has set for payment, depending on the benefits or tax credits you receive:

Why haven’t I received my first payment yet?

The government says there may be reasons why your payment may arrive later – for example, if you receive an eligible benefit at a later date or if you change the account your benefit or tax credits are on. paid.

It indicates that you will always receive the cost of living payment automatically and that you do not need to contact the DWP Where HMRC.

Another reason you may not have received payment yet is that you are still awaiting a decision on your benefit application or appeal – if you are eligible, you will automatically receive the cost of living payment at a later date.
