Chilly Climate Triggered Funds – Can You Get £ 25 On Your Vitality Payments?

Who is Eligible?

You may receive cold weather payments if you receive:

  • Retirement loan
  • social care
  • Income-related unemployment benefit
  • Income-related employment and support allowance
  • Universal credit
  • Support for mortgage interest

The exact criteria depend on your situation. For example, you usually only receive cold weather payments if you are on a universal loan and are not employed or self-employed. If you have universal credit and you are unemployed, one of the following conditions must also be met:

  • You have a state of health or a disability and are only able to work to a limited extent
  • You have a child under the age of five who lives with you

If you have a universal loan, you are eligible even if you have a disabled child, regardless of whether you are employed or not.
