    I'm assuming you're asking about cost of living payments and there are no further payments for anyone. 
    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.

    My friend wasnt sure whether it was PIP she received (not sure why she didnt check this on her bank ACC) so I assumed she had received PIP £150...I posted the Q, 2 mins after speaking with her. 

    Turns out she's received WHD.. which is odd as she never received it last year.Which made me think it must have been PIP. She has no confirmed it was indeed WHD. Odd she got it this year and not last, when its now based on the efficiency of the home.

    They lowered the threshold for the WHD this year for those living in England and Wales. Having said that I wouldn't have expected her to receive this payment into her bank account. It's usually paid onto your energy account if you pay by DD. Or as vouchers or directly onto the meter if you have a prepayment meter.
