Cold Weather Payments


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
