Cold Weather Payments are trigged when the temperature drops across England and Wales.

They are worth £25 but you can receive multiple payments over winter if there are several periods of freezing weather.

Some households have already received two payments this year, totalling £75 - you can see a full list of all the eligible postcodes below.

Cold Weather Payments are awarded when the average temperature in your area is recorded as, or forecast to be, 0C or below over seven consecutive days.

These payments go to people on low incomes who receive certain benefits.

Most people should receive the cash automatically - although there are some situations where you won't, which we explain below.

Cold Weather Payments are not available in Scotland anymore - but you might be entitled to an annual £50 Winter Heating Payment instead.

Cold Weather Payments started again on November 1 and will run until March 31, 2023.

The Government uses weather stations in England and Wales to determine when a Cold Weather Payment has been triggered.

You could get a Cold Weather Payment if the temperature drops and you're receiving:
• None Income Support (if you have any of the following: a disability or pensioner premium, a child who is disabled, Child Tax Credit that includes a disability or severe disability element or a child under five living with you)
• None Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance (if you have any of the following: a disability or pensioner premium, a child who is disabled, Child Tax Credit that includes a disability or severe disability element or a child under five living with you)
• None Income-related Employment and Support Allowance (if you have any of the following: a severe or enhanced disability premium, a pensioner premium, a child who is disabled, Child Tax Credit that includes a disability or severe disability element or a child under five living with you)
• None Universal Credit (if you are not employed or self-employed, and you have a health condition or disability and have limited capability for work, or you have a child under five living with you)
• None Support for Mortgage Interest (if you have any of the following: a severe or enhanced disability premium, a pensioner premium, a child who is disabled, Child Tax Credit that includes a disability or severe disability element or a child under five living with you)

If you claim Income Support, Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance or Income-related Employment and Support Allowance, you will need to contact Jobcentre Plus to get a Cold Weather Payment if:
• None A child under five has come to live with you
