    The Government has announced that millions of UK households will shortly get a Cost of Living Payment of £300. The payment will be made to eligible customers between 31 October and 19 November 2023.

    This is the second of three payments over the financial year totalling up to £900. Eligible pensioner households will also receive a further £300 payment later this year as an addition to the Winter Fuel payment.

    Eligible tax credits-only customers who do not qualify for a payment from DWP will receive £300 from HMRC 10-19 November 2023.

    Customers will receive the payments automatically. They do not need to contact DWP or do anything to receive the payment.

    From 20 November 2023, people who have become retrospectively entitled, or think they should have had a Cost of Living Payment but have not received one can report it via GOV.UK. If the person is not able to use the internet or they do not know someone who can help them, they can report a missing payment via their benefit telephone line.
