As part of the government's £15 billion cost of living package, if you claim certain types of disability benefits then you will receive a one off payment of £150 to help cover the cost of rising bills.

You will receive the £150 payment if you receive:

- Attendance Allowance

- Constant Attendance Allowance

- Disability Living Allowance (for adults and children)

- Personal Independence Payment

- Armed Forces Independence Payment

- War Pension Mobility Supplement

For those living in Scotland, you will also receive the £150 payment if you receive Adult or Child Disability Payment.

In order to receive the £150 payment, you will need to have been entitled to the benefit on 25 May 2022.

You should get the £150 payment by the end of September and this should be paid into the bank account where you receive your benefits.

This payment is on top off the £400 energy discount for all households.

You may be entitled to an additional cost of living payment if you receive a qualifying low income benefit or tax credits.

Those who receive Winter Fuel Payments will also be entitled to an extra £300.

If you are not sure what benefits you could get then it is worth using an independent benefits calculator to find out.
