The Government has confirmed that the £150 disability cost of living payment will be paid automatically from 20 September, with the vast majority of those eligible expected to receive their one-off payment by the beginning of October.
Those who had confirmed payment of their disability benefit for 25 May are expected to be paid shortly after the payment window opens. For those awaiting confirmation of their disability benefits on 25 May, or who are waiting to be assessed for eligibility to receive disability benefits, the process may take longer but payments will still be automatic.
You must have received a payment (or later receive a payment) of one of the qualifying benefits for 25 May 2022 to get the payment.
More information including about the qualifying benefits for this payment can be found on GOV.UK.
