Cold Weather Payments
If the average temperature in your area is recorded as, or forecast to be, 0 degrees Celsius or below for 7 days in a row, you will get a Cold Weather Payment automatically.
You do not have to pay this back.
You'll get £25 for each 7-day period of very cold weather if you get:
- Pension Credit
- Income Support
- income-based Job Seeker’s Allowance
- income-related Employment and Support Allowance
- Universal Credit
- Support for Mortgage Interest
