    You are not the only person not to have received the £150. We have many other threads here with people saying exactly the same thing. See link. https://forum.scope.org.uk/categories/cost-of-living
    Have you reported the missing payment? If not then you can do that here. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/cost-of-living-payment#report-a-missing-cost-of-living-payment
    You will then be contacted in due course. Unfortunately, no one can tell you when you will receive it.



    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.

    That is quite rude to be honest. You can comment on any forum and if anyone tells you a specific date it’s false. No one knows how and when these payments will be sent, not even PIP/DLA/AA as a separate team are working on them. You really do need to fill the form out if you haven’t though or you will get no payment at all.

    Being rude isn't going to help you. I would love to be able to answer your question as to when you will receive the money but it's not possible to do that and you won't get the answer you're looking for here. The only ones that can answer that is the Government. Try contacting your local MP. https://www.parliament.uk/get-involved/contact-an-mp-or-lord/contact-your-mp/

    To be honest I haven’t been rude was just real I wasn’t born to be fake sorry. I put up a question on the forum yes I did I would like some answers now as to why a lot of people are missing there payments. I have right to ask a question and I have right to give feedback of how it has made me feel @bg844. Don’t make it seem worse then it is. It’s a question I asked and feedback I given back

    Please quote where either myself or bg88 has said that. Everyone has the right to ask questions but the question you're asking can't be answered here.

    Hello @tweety88 and welcome to the Scope online community, it's a space where members can share information based on their own experiences of living with disability. 

    I can see why it feels unfair that you haven't yet received your cost of living payment, and to have had no further updates since submitting the form reporting it was missing. It's easy to feel left behind and frustrated, and I do hope the money comes through soon for you.

    If I had to guess, it could be that anyone who has more recently been awarded PIP (e.g. in 2022) is sadly waiting a bit longer for the payment to come through.

    You've mentioned you're struggling, what's worrying you most? I know it's not an answer to your question, but we might be able to help support you :) 

    I'm sorry I can't give you a more exact answer to your question today, but we hear you. Let us know if you have better luck this week, and if we can help support you further, please ask.

    I'm not sure how you could have rang them because there's no phone number. Ringing PIP isn't going to help because they are not dealing with the payments.
