Hi I'm a bit confused. My partner claims esa (I'm on his claim) and I claim the child tax credits(he's listed on the claim)
I think he received COL payment a few weeks ago.. 
Would that mean I'll get the the next one as I'm on tax credits I've read so many different things about it all it's frazzled my brain and I'm just confusing myself the more I'm reading into it
Hope what I'm saying makes sense
Tia 😊

    No, you will not receive the £326 from Tax Credits. The £326 your partner received was for you both to share. If you get tax credits from HMRC and a low income benefit from DWP, you will get a Cost of Living Payment from DWP only.
    Your next payment of £324 will be paid sometime in the Autumn. Full details here. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/cost-of-living-payment
