Cost of Living payments 2023-24 support

The Cost of Living support package has been designed to help over 8 million households in receipt of means tested benefits. The details for Cost of Living Payments due in the 2023-24 tax year were published earlier this year and have recently been updated.

Eligible recipients will receive up to 3 Cost of Living Payments of £301, £300 and £299 during the course of the current tax-year. This includes those receiving pension credit, and these payments will be made separately from other benefit payments. The first payment of £301 was made between April-May 2023 and the second payment of £300 was paid during August-September 2023. The third payment of £299 is due to be paid in spring 2024.

An additional one-off payment of £150 or £300 will be paid to pensioners during winter 2023-24. The Winter Fuel Payment is provided by the government to help older people keep warm during winter. The amount a pensioner will receive depends on a number of factors including their age and the age of other people living with them. You can get a Winter Fuel Payment for winter 2023-24 if you were born before 25 September 1957. HMRC is in the process of writing to eligible recipients telling them how much to expect.
