A Cold Weather Payment can provide valuable support to people who are experiencing particularly cold temperatures. As snow continues to fall across the UK, the DWP has confirmed another Cold Weather Payment has been triggered. The latest Cold Weather Payment to be issued is for the Dyce weather station, affecting a number of postcodes.

These are as follows:

  • Universal Credit
  • Pension Credit
  • Income Support
  • Support for Mortgage Interest
  • Employment and Support Allowance
  • Jobseeker’s Allowance

The £25 payout covers each period of very cold weather between November 1, and March 31.
