    As the Disability Cost of Living payment (which is for those on PIP + some other benefits) won't be until the summer, & no date as yet announced, nor what the qualifying date may be, perhaps your family member got a text for another benefit such as for those on a low income as payment for these is from next Tues.

    The PIP cost of living payment of £150 isn't due until sometime this Summer and the date hasn't yet been confirmed.
    The cost of living payment of £301 that's coming between 25th April and 17th May you need to be claiming certain DWP means tested benefits to be entitled to this. PIP doesn't entitle you to this payment.
    Do you claim any other benefits, if so which ones?
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
