Second £150 Disability COL Payment?
3 people in a group I’m in said they have £150 pending in their banks for Tuesday 3rd October. Under ‘DWP COL PAYMENT - £150’ and they’ve already received their £150 back in June/July.
But I didn’t know we was due another DLA/PIP COL payment? So I googled it, and apparently we will be getting £150 on top of every upcoming COL payments (if you’re on a certain disability payment) 🤦🏻♀️ someone help me out🤣🙈
“Disabled people on low incomes in receipt of means-tested benefits may previously have been eligible for £301 this Spring, and stand to be eligible for a further £300 this autumn and £299 in spring 2024. The £150 payment will be made on top of these Cost of Living Payments, with disabled people who wouldn’t qualify for the means-tested support, but who are in receipt of disability support, also receiving the payment.”
So; am I right in thinking us whom are on pip/dla will get an extra £150 in Autumn from the £300 and the £299 in Spring 2024?
I’m confused. 😮💨
