Cold Weather Payments

Overview

You may get a Cold Weather Payment if you’re getting certain benefits or Support for Mortgage Interest.
 
You’ll get a payment if the average temperature in your area is recorded as, or forecast to be, zero degrees celsius or below over 7 consecutive days.
 
You’ll get £25 for each 7 day period of very cold weather between 1 November and 31 March.
 
The Cold Weather Payment scheme runs from 1 November 2019 to 31 March 2020. Check if you can get a payment in your area.
Cold Weather Payments are different to Winter Fuel Payments.
