     Don't see reason to fill out form when we entitled to it innit... 👍
    I agree with you entirely. There should be no need for forms to tell them that they have missed someone - where is the quality control in all of this?
    Forms much like letters sent to them are never answered in any event. I have a huge file of letters sent to the DWP and Pension Service over a period of 18 months with not one reply

    When you take into consideration there are 6 million payments to be made, missing some people could happen. Despite what people think, they are only human.
    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.

    Yes the end of the week. The link to report a missing payment is here. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/cost-of-living-payment#report-a-missing-cost-of-living-payment
    You won't receive the payment in with your usual PIP amount.

    Do you think there is still a possibility we might get it this week? Even though there is a form to fill in for missing payment? I’m trying to erase any hope I have that it might just appear in my bank account in the next few days. Seeing the message at the end of the form, “2 weeks” 🙈
    Feel silly for expecting it, but I think it was the amount of emphasis they put on the importance of the extra help, now I’m really struggling. I hope all those who didn’t receive it do soon, and that anyone who is struggling is able to get by until they do x

    Eligibility

    You must have received a payment (or later receive a payment) of one of these qualifying benefits for 25 May 2022 to get the payment.

    If you get a qualifying disability benefit from the Ministry of Defence (MOD) and a qualifying disability benefit from DWP, you will get a Disability Cost of Living Payment from DWP only.

    If you receive a Disability Cost of Living Payment, but we later find that you were not eligible for it, you may have to pay it back.

    When you fill out the form they advise it can be up to 2 weeks for them to contact you.
