“In fact, recognising the pressures of the rising cost of living, we’re increasing our payments to the most vulnerable to £1,350 in 2023-24, having delivered £1,200 to millions of households last year.
“This is on top of a rise in benefits of 10.1 percent next month. We have also provided more than £94 billion over 2022-23 and 2023-24 to help people with higher bills – an average of more than £3,300 per household and as announced in the Spring Budget, the Energy Price Guarantee will be extended for an additional three months.”

People on disability benefits are to get a £150 payment during summer 2023 and pensioners who receive the Winter Fuel Payment are to get between £150 and £300 on top of the winter payment next winter.
