    Glad you've had this resolved @hass

    The cold weather payment is often paid prior to the arrival of any letter, so you might end up getting confirmation in the post.

    I wonder how much the DWP could save by not sending the letters out, because as you say they usually come after the money has been paid, perhaps they could text instead or something similar

    Maybe one day they'll arrive in the 21st century and have email as an option :)  Though that would also have an associated cost.
