edited September 2022 in Cost of living
Hi Everyone, I just spoke to PIP to update my number and asked them if i was eligible now for a cost of living payment of £150 and they said no. I didnt get a payment until August obviously because my claim took a while but i was eligible for PIP from April. Does this mean i wont get the £150 like he said on the phone. I have read online that it says later to be eligible for a payment before may but he says i still wont be.

    That's not correct. You must have received a payment (or later receive a payment) of one of the qualifying benefits for 25 May 2022 to get the payment.
    Just so that you're aware, it's not PIP that are making the payments, it's the Government so it's very likely that the call centre wouldn't really know what the criteria is.



    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.

    There's been many many threads asking the same thing and no one here has received anything yet. To be honest, i've not heard of anyone that has received it yet.

    I know it's difficult but try and think about something else. There's nothing anyone can do at the moment anyway and it's only the 2nd day into the payment period. It took about a week for my daughter to receive the £326 back in July.

    Had it not been for the special bank holiday I suspect some would have received it by now, next week is my best guess.

    the CoL disability payment is paid separately.
