Around 6 million disabled people in the UK will receive a one-off £150 disability Cost of Living payment from 20 September, the government has recently confirmed.

Those being paid a qualifying disability benefit will be paid automatically with the vast majority of those eligible expected to receive their one-off payment within a couple of weeks and by the beginning of October. 

For those disabled people on low-incomes, this payment comes in addition to other cost-of-living payments totalling £650; £400 for all households to help with energy bills, and an extra £150 for properties in Council Tax bands A-D in England. 

“As we move into the colder months, the cost-of-living crisis is sure to have an impact on everyone, so it is welcome news that those on low income due to disability will receive some help to aid them through these unprecedented times. “Rutland County Council is committed to supporting all residents through this crisis and we will be further promoting and encouraging those in need to take advantage of what we already offer by way of support. We will also continue to work closely with partners to establish what more we can do to help through these particularly difficult times.”Cllr Lucy Stephenson, Leader of Rutland County Council

Full details relating to the one off disability payment can be found on the Government website.
