Britons on PIP and 6 other benefits set to get extra £150 from DWP in weeks

britons on pip and 6 other benefits set to get extra £150 from dwp in weeks


Personal Independence Payment (PIP) claimants are part of the set of people to receive the £150 cash boost from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).

This comes as part of a wider package of Government support, including separate means-tested Cost of Living Payments totalling up to £900, and £300 pensioner payments.

‌At a time when costs are rising for everyone, this payment recognises the extra costs disabled people in particular often face, such as care and mobility needs.

It provides extra cash which could be vital for those on low incomes struggling with the financial squeeze.

‌The money will be paid automatically into the same account for their qualifying benefit but will appear as a separate payment.

This will arrive between June 20 and July 4, 2023.

The full list of benefit recipients that qualify for the upcoming Disability Cost of Living payment are those who receive:

  • Disability Living Allowance
  • Personal Independence Payment
  • Attendance Allowance
  • Scottish Disability Benefits (Adult Disability Payment and Child Disability Payment)
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment
  • Constant Attendance Allowance
  • War Pension Mobility Supplement

Claimants must have received a payment (or later receive a payment) on April 1, 2023 to be eligible for the £150 boost.

For those who were awaiting confirmation of their entitlement to disability benefits on April 1, or who are waiting to be assessed for eligibility to receive disability benefits, the process may take longer, but payments will still be automatic.

PIP explained

The £150 payment will show on one’s bank statement with the reference ‘DWP COL’, along with their national insurance number.

‌Britons are urged to watch out for scam texts or emails inviting people to claim or apply for the payment.

The DWP has said it’ll never ask someone for personal details or banking information over text or email.

It has also been warned that if someone gets a cost of living payment and the DWP later finds they weren’t eligible, they may have to pay it back.

Minister for Disabled People, Health and Work, Tom Pursglove MP, said: “We know the cost of living has gone up for disabled people, which is why we are taking action to reduce the financial pressures they face.

“This £150 Disability Cost of Living Payment is on top of up to £900 that most low-income benefit claimants will also receive, helping ensure the most vulnerable in our society are protected from rising costs during this challenging period.”

In 2023/24, there are three different cost of living payments available totalling £1,350.

Those eligible for the disability payment can get this on top of the up to £900 cost of living payment for those on low incomes, and/or the £300 pensioner payment.

‌There are eight million households that get means-tested benefits including Universal Credit and child and working tax credits, that could qualify for up to £900 in cost of living payments.

These payments are made in three instalments:

  • £301 – paid between April 25 and May 17, 2023
  • £300 – during autumn 2023 (payment and eligibility dates yet to be confirmed).
  • £299 – during spring 2024 (payment and eligibility dates yet to be confirmed).

Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, Mel Stride MP, said: “This payment helps protect those who need our support the most, providing a vital financial boost to six million disabled people. Our multi-billion-pound package of support reinforces our commitment to help UK households with the rising cost of living. It comes on top of record increases to benefits and the national living wage.
