Cost of Living payment LATEST: DWP says Tax Credit recipients must WAIT for payout as Brits on Universal Credit get £324

THE DWP has revealed that Brits on Tax Credits will have to wait nearly two weeks to receive their second Cost of Living payment.

The DWP officially began sending out the second Cost of Living payment, worth £324, on Tuesday – bringing the total payout to £650.

But most people who are entitled to the payment did not receive the cash on November 8, with the DWP confirming that numbers would “increase significantly” between November 9 and November 23.

To be eligible for the cash, you will have to claim at least one of these benefits; Income-based Jobseekers Allowance, Income-related Employment and Support Allowance, Income Support, Working Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, Pension Credit and Universal Credit.

The DWP also confirmed that households who qualify for the cost of living payment through tax credits will receive their payment after those on Universal Credit get theirs.
