Over 10,000 households in Leighton Buzzard and Dunstable to get second cost of living payment
MP for South West Bedfordshire, Andrew Selous has welcomed the move which is set to benefit 10,200 vulnerable households.
The payment will be made automatically so there is no need to apply and it will not count towards the benefit cap or impact on existing benefit awards. Those who get means-tested benefits, like Universal Credit, Pension Credit, or tax credits, will receive the £300.
Andrew Selous MP said: “The record financial support has already supported thousands of families across South West Bedfordshire, and this latest £300 Cost of Living payment for 10,200 eligible households will make a huge difference to the most vulnerable households and those on the lowest incomes as we move into the colder months.”
