    If you are referring to the £650 paid in two instalments (one already made and one to come later) this is payable to those on means tested legacy benefits.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    Between 8th and 23rd November for those claiming DWP means tested benefits.
    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.

    I've got both the first payment of £326 and the £150, and eagerly await the November payment.  BUT in light of what's going on with energy bills, the money offered needs to be a lot more.

    I'm still waiting for my £150 disability payment from September. I filled out the form on the GOV site, early October. I received a letter saying I was due the payment, and would receive it in due course. That was over 2 weeks ago. Anyone else?

    There are many others too and there’s several other threads here. Some have started to receive the payment. 
    You’ve done all you can and now all you can do is wait for the money.

    Yes I'm still waiting, one month now since receiving the letter. Farcical to say the least

    Hi

    Glad you got your payment Kevin.  I received the second payment last week.

    Sorry don’t think I have explained properly . 
    The payment is due to clear Monday . 
    But if you are with Monzo you can opt to receive the day before (Sunday at 4pm) 
    or wait until it “officially clears” in your account on Monday . 
    You can see pending payment in your account . 
    If anyone else is with Monzo they will understand what I mean. 
    So they payment will be available in my account Monday 
    That's not how monzo works. They don't release payments on weekends. If you're due a payment on Monday you will get it on Friday or a day early on Thursday from 4pm.

    Hi guys, does everyone who receives PIP get the £150? As I was reading and it says you may be entitled, am I worrying too much?

    Hi guys, does everyone who receives PIP get the £150? As I was reading and it says you may be entitled, am I worrying too much? 

    You will be entitled to it if you received a payment for PIP for 1st April 2023. It's due to be paid anytime from 20th June to 4th July. See link. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/cost-of-living-payment#disability-cost-of-living-payment

    I’m gonna sound really silly here, I presume from the 1st of April as in April I was paid the 6th

    A payment for the 1st April and not from. It means if you have a current award in place that started before that date then you will be entitled to the payment.

    Thank you for that. I was just worried, I’ve been receiving since September last year so now I know I’ll receive it. Sorry for seeming dim and thank you again
