Child Tax Credit and Cold Weather Payments
One of the benefits that can qualify you for the DWP cold weather payment is the child tax credit. You are automatically eligible if you have a child under five and are eligible for the child tax credit.
The DWP is committed to helping families with young children during the brutal winter, and this is a part of that commitment.
You may qualify for the cold weather payment and a child tax credit by receiving a working tax credit. This is especially true if your active tax credit includes a disability or severe disability component.
Living Payment and DWP Benefits
A different phrase frequently used about DWP benefits is living payment. It alludes to the sum you are given to pay for your daily expenses. In addition to your regular living allowance, the DWP offers a cold-weather payment to assist with additional winter heating expenses.
