On 26 May 2022, the Government announced measures it is taking to support individuals with the cost of living crisis, including a one-off £650 payment to support the UK’s most vulnerable.
A £650 payment will be made to individuals/households who are receiving means-tested benefits.
There are eight million households on means-tested benefits in the UK. If you know someone who is vulnerable, they may not be aware of or understand the support they are entitled to, so please feel free to share this information.
If you are overwhelmed or struggling financially or emotionally, please visit the wellbeing support pages for information and details of organisations who can support you through these difficult times.
