    The same help if you are eligible.

    If eligable, you'll get the £650 and the £150 for disabled people, plus what everyone is getting, £400 on the gas.

    Was watching interview with Martin Money Lewis fella with Sunak earlier. Maybe I heard it wrong but there was mention ESA contribution based won't get the £650.

    That would be right - it's only means-tested benefits that qualify for the £650 so if on CB ESA only(with no IR top-up) you would not get it.

    You may get a payment of £650 paid in 2 lump sums if you’re in receipt of any of the following:

    income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
    income-related Employment and Support Allowance
    Income Support
    Pension Credit
    Universal Credit

    You will get one payment from July 2022 and a second payment in autumn 2022, if you’re entitled.

    You will need to have been entitled to one of these qualifying benefits on 25 May 2022 to get the first payment.

    Disability benefits

    You may get a lump sum payment of £150 if you’re in receipt of any of the following:

    Attendance Allowance
    Constant Attendance Allowance
    Disability Living Allowance
    Personal Independence Payment
    Scottish Disability Benefits
    Armed Forces Independence Payment
    War Pension Mobility Supplement

    You will need to have been entitled to one of these qualifying benefits on 25 May 2022 to get the payment.

    You will get the payment by September 2022.

    While this is welcome it does blow a rather large gaping hole in the government claim that those on legacy benefits couldn't have received an equivalent of the £20 UC uplift because the DWP computer system made it impossible. If they can pay out lump sums now why not then?

    Interesting then Housing Benefit is not a qualifier on its own. I hope people get letters rather then just watching their bank account to see if they get it.

    Exactly, the claimants for our UC uplift need to get the band back together and get back to court.

    I'm not sure what sort of ESA I'm on.
    I remember I had to go for an assessment.
    And I think I get the disability extra.
    I do get pip daily living too.
    So does that mean I'm not contribution based.
    I'm so confused.
