    cold weather payment check 23rd Nov 17 at 10:56 PM
    Check if a cold weather payment is due for your area here>>

    https://coldweatherpayments.dwp.gov.uk

    A cold weather payment will be made to those on qualifying benefits if the temp. is 0 degrees or below for 7 consecutive days, 25 for each period is payable.

    CWP should not be confused with winter fuel allowance.

    Just received the first cold weather payment of the season, and about time, too. Not had the heating off for over a week.

    It's worth checking for those first payments.
    Fred - Where's your get up and go?

    Barney - It just got up and went.

    I'm due one apparently, as the period in my area ended on the 1st of March but i haven't seen it in my account yet.

    would really do me a favour at the moment
