Cost of Living crisis - help available
Broughton News September 2022
Cost of Living
We all know that costs are rising but help is available.
The government is supporting residents in a variety of ways including:
Energy Bills Support Scheme: Domestic electricity customers in Great Britain will receive a £400 grant which will appear as a credit from energy suppliers from October 2022 onwards. This will not need to be repaid
Winter Fuel Payment: If you were born on or before 25 September 1956 you could get between £250 and £600 to help you pay your heating bills
Cost of Living Payment: Households on means tested benefits, including Universal Credit, Pension Credit and Tax Credits, will receive a payment of £650 this year
Disability Cost of Living Payment: Individuals on disability benefits will receive a one-off £150 payment in September
These may change when the new Prime Minister is announced.
