On Tuesday 15th January 2013 temperatures plummeted below zero. The freezing weather triggered the £25 Cold Weather Payments for eligible residents.
The Met Offices forecast means some residents in the following post codes are entitled to a payment: WN6 and WN8.
Eligible recipients are those on Income Support, income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance, income-related Employment and Support Allowance or Pension Credit.
Rosie Cooper MP said:
“There should be no need for residents to make a claim since payment is made automatically based on their postcode and meeting the eligibility criteria. However, if any residents do not receive a payment but believe they may be entitled to they should contact my office on 01695 570094.”
