    The table suggests that the 66 year old will get £250 and the 87 year old £350 which includes the 'pensioner cost of living payment'. However if either receive pension credit then the 66 year old gets £500 and the 87 year old £600, as I read it.

    Paid in November / December.

    Thank you. Things are clearer now than when I originally posted. I agree with your interpretation.

    How terribly annoying for WASPI women who expected to be pensioners by now, to also miss out on this one-off pensioner cost of living payment.

    I'm a 1950s woman, but not a WASPE.  I'm not a hypocrite.
    Our extra £300 will go the same way as our usual £200 - to two family members who need it more than we do.

    It is purely an extra £300 per pensioner household irrespective of how many or age.  How it is going to be paid / split has not been announced.
    We’ll find out later in the year when it turns up in our bank accounts  :)
