    Between the 2 of you, you qualify for six lots of the help (£2,150 in total) -

    You will both get £650 each - you with your IS, him with his IR ESA.
    (Some of it from July, some of it later. Everyone is assuming it will be paid as £325 from July and then another £325 later).

    You will both get £150 each - with your PIP's.

    You will get £400 credited to your electricity account.

    You will get £150 paid to the bank account of whoever's name is on the Council Tax bill, (or credited to the CT account if you do actually pay CT and choose that instead).

    The £150 for DLA/PIP/AA/etc. is basically to make up for taking those out of automatic qualification for the Warm Home Discount.

    (They don't say that but it's fairly obvious).

    It does mean that some will still get the WHD with an IR benefit, and now get that £150 as well.

    They don't say anything about rates or components, just that you have the benefit on 25th May 2022.
    Disability benefits

    You may get a lump sum payment of £150 if you’re getting 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 the end of September 2022.

    There are always going to be some 'on the edge' situations like this with people changing benefits or even coming off benefits, and until there is legislation or at least guidance set out about these payments no-one can be 100% sure how they get handled in practice.

    But the intention is clear - If you had PIP, or one of the others, on 25th May then you qualify for the £150.

    Personally I'd think that PIP would still be responsible for paying it if you were on PIP on 25th May; even if by the time it's paid you are no longer getting PIP for whatever reason.
