Good afternoon everyone,  I  really am so sorry to bother you all ! I have searched all over the net for an answer and can't seem to get any clarification.  
Currently I am in the support group for ESA and I receive contributions based AND INCOME RELATED.  I also receive pip enhanced for both components. Will I be entitled to the cost of living payment this month. Any feedback will be very much appreciated. 
Best regards 
Rose.

    Yes because part of your ESA is Income Related. The first payment of £326 will be paid between 14th - 31st July. The £324 will be paid sometime in the Autumn.
    The £150 for the PIP will be paid in Septemeber. Full details here. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/cost-of-living-payment

    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.
