The current spell of freezing weather has triggered Cold Weather Payments for Birmingham residents who are eligible for them. You can check if you should be receiving Cold Weather Payments via this link. Payments amount to £25 for each 7 day periods of cold weather. So far in the current cold spell we have had one period. Payments are not made immediately but should be received within the next 2 weeks. If you have any queries about your Cold Weather Payments you should contact you pension centre or Job Centre Plus (depending on which benefit you receive).
