It is to be made in two instalments which eligible people should receive in the near future.

For Pension Credit claimants to be eligible, they must have received the sum for any day in the period of April 26, 2022 to May 25, 2022.

The DWP is to provide further guidance, and the Government will set out the qualifying dates for the second instalment, in due course.

The payment is tax-free and does not impact on any existing benefit awards.

Payments are made directly to households across the UK who are eligible.
