Hi, all I'm so sorry it's me again,  just one of my friends said I’m entitled to the £150 cost of living payment that was made in September 2022, because my claim for pip was on 09,08, 22, this is true. Thank you for any information

    You needed to have an award of PIP in payment for 25 May 2022 in order to receive this Cost of Living payment last year, or have claimed PIP, & been later awarded, which was then backdated to 25 May 2022 or earlier, sorry.
