Cold Weather Payments

You may get a Cold Weather Payment if you’re getting certain benefits or support for mortgage interest.

About the Cold Weather Payment

  • 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 2023 to 2024 scheme will start on 1 November 2023. You’ll be able to check if your area is due a payment in November 2023.
  • Cold Weather Payments are different to Winter Fuel Payments.
