I had text from DWP said cost if living payment paid automatically etc etc so getting text mean you get.. I know I'm getting mine cause it November to December 2023 I got UC payment anyway so if those didn't get text mean they won't get it cause I saw online it say not all getting COL payment so....?? Any idea??

    Nope, not everyone will receive a text if they are entitled. I've been entitled to them all and have never received a text. There's also some people that did receive a text in the past and weren't entitled to it. 
    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 got a text yesterday and I know luckily and so needed I will be getting it. I been getting a text every time it was paid. I remember the first time I got a text some folk on here had a go at me saying to ignore it as it was a scam. Really jumped all over me like it was my fault I got a text.

    It seems it's luck of the draw, as I received texts beforehand in April, June, October & then on Wednesday for the latest.

    Thanks everyone for giving your story on what's happened regarding these texts! It does seem quite random.
    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with

    Payment is due anytime between 6th and 22nd Feb. For those that are entitled because of Tax credits will receive their payment between 16th and 22nd Feb.

    It means you will receive it anytime between 6th and 22nd Feb. It doesn't mean you'll definitely receive it on 6th or 7th. Some will and others won't.

    I checked my banking app and the £299 comes in after 12 tonight. But as poppy said it will go in anytime from the 6th Feb onwards. Check just in case @Qasimo.

    No you shouldn't ask questions like that on here and towns have nothing to do with COL payments

    No it doesn't, whatThe is correct. Who they pay is done at complete random, there's no specific way they pay anyone. I live with my daughter and had mine today, she hasn't had hers yet. 

    Scope don't allow personal information and members shouldn't reveal which town they live in for safety reasons.
    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.
