Can I get a Cold Weather Payment?
You might qualify for a Cold Weather Payment if you are claiming Pension Credit and do not live in a care home.
You may also be able to get a Cold Weather Payment if you do not live in a care home and are claiming Income Support, Income-related Employment and Support Allowance or Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance or Universal Credit as long as one of these statements also applies to you:
- You get an extra amount in your benefit (a premium) for having a disability or for being over state pension age
- You have a child under five
- You have a child and you get Child Tax Credit with an extra amount for their disability
