    For the £650 payment you need to be claiming certain means tested benefits on 25th May.Whether you're entitled to it will totally depend what benefits you claim exactly.  The first payment of £326 will be made in July. The 2nd payment of £324 will be paid sometime in the Autumn, not in August.
    The £150 payment for the PIP will be made in Septemeber.
    Full details of all payments here. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/cost-of-living-payment

    Then the payment advice for the £650 is correct. They haven’t announced yet when in the Autumn the £324 will be paid.

    Hi all
    I won my tribunal last month back dated to Jan 2021, revived my back pay last week. As it was awarded back to Jan 21 do I qualify for the £150? I wasn’t getting payment in may 22 but surely the back dated award means I should have been receiving it in may 22.

    Yes, you now qualify for the £150 disability payment.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
