    I note from previous threads that you've been claiming UC for quite a while, is that correct?

    The qualifying period for the next CoL payment is you must have received a payment or been entitled to a payment of UC for an assessment period (AP) that ended between 18th Aug to 17th Sept 2023.

    As your APs are 19th to 18th of every month. Your qualifying AP would be 19th July to 18th August and not the Aug/Sept AP. Therefore if you were entitled to a payment of UC for 25th August you will be entitled. Remember, it's when the AP ended that counts.

    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.

    I received mine on Tuesday and my daughter had hers today. There's still a couple of weeks yet to receive it, so plenty of time left.

    Lots of people have received it and lots are still waiting.
