Gedling MP welcomes latest cost of living payment

It is the second of three payments totalling up to £900 for those eligible and on means-tested benefits


Gedling MP Tom Randall has welcomed confirmation that the next cost of living payment, worth £300 for 10,300 vulnerable and low-income households in Gedling borough, will be made between October 31 and November 19.

He said it is the second of three payments totalling up to £900 for those eligible and on means-tested benefits, such as Universal Credit, Pension Credit, or tax credits, in 2023-24, and will help families.

Details about the third cost of living payment will be announced in due course.

Mr Randall said: “These payments build on the Cost of Living Payments made last year worth up to £1,200, and form part of the Government’s record financial support for the most vulnerable, worth an average of £3,300 per household.”

The £300 Cost of Living Payment will be sent out automatically and directly to eligible households, so there is no need to apply. Eligible pensioner households will also receive a further £300 payment later this year as an addition to the Winter Fuel Payment.

Mr Randall said: “It is important that the Government continues to do everything it can to support households across Gedling with global inflation caused by Putin’s illegal war in Ukraine and the aftermath of the pandemic.

“This latest £300 Cost of Living Payment for 10,300 eligible households will make a huge difference to the most vulnerable and those on the lowest incomes this autumn. The Government rightly remains committed to halving inflation, which is the best way to help everyone across Gedling with the cost of living.”

  1. Again he pops up, to put his face to something the government is doing in general that he’s likely had no involvement in. I wonder what the point of these articles are other than a publicity campaign. I’d love to see the stuff he is doing.

  2. Find it funny u put the war with Russia which is nothing to do with us unless we really are helping the Nazis any of u muppets ever see what the Ukraine soldiers was doing to the public in these mainly Russia city’s before this so called war ur supporting Nazis who we thought against
