Hello everyone, I was wondering if anyone is able to help me? I would like to know if I am eligible for the £150 COL payment. I started my claim on the 15th February of this year but my PiP wasn’t awarded until the 20th
June. I thought I might of been eligible due to starting my claim before the cut off point in May. I reported this a few weeks ago, but I have yet to receive a letter. 

Any help would be appreciated. 

Thanks in advance

    Yes you are entitled to it. You are not the only person that still hasn't receive the £150 and there's many other threads here on the forum about this.
    There are some people that have started to receive the money since end of last week. As you've filled out the missing payment form there's nothing more you can do but wait for the money to go into your bank.
    The letter they are sending out after filling out the form, will only tell you what you already know "that you're entitled to the payment" It then says "you will receive the payment in due course"
    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.

    Excellent, thank you for clearing this up for me. Hopefully it’ll be in my account soon. I’m not sure if there’s a date when the stop the payments either.

    I don't know what you mean by that? It's just a one off payment of £150.

    My apologies, in my head I know what I want to say, but I’m finding it hard to get it out into writing

    Don't worry @Jumpman95 :) Getting things in our heads down into writing can be tricky. 

    Were you wondering about when your PIP payments might end?

    Hello, I was wondering if there was a cut off point for the £150 payment, as in if they’d stop sending the payment out on a certain date. I hope that makes more sense? 

    I never received a letter saying I was entitled to the payment either when I reported it missing. So the whole thing has been very overwhelming and makes me panic

    As i advised, you are entitled to the payment. The criteria is you must have a received a payment, or later became entitled to a payment for 25th May, which you were.
    Some people haven't received the letter but received the payment in the past week. You don't need the letter because it only tells you what you already know, as i advised.
    Other members here have started to receive it.
