Cold Weather Payment
If you're getting certain benefits you may be eligible for Cold Weather Payments when the weather is very cold.
You can get an extra £25 a week when the average temperature has been, or is expected to be, 0°C or below for seven days in a row.
How do I claim?
You will automatically receive a Cold Weather Payment if you get Pension Credit or certain other benefits.
Contact the Northern Ireland Pension Centre if you think you should have received a Cold Weather Payment but didn’t.
