Cold Weather Payment checker

Check to see if your Northern Ireland postcode is in an area due to receive payments triggered by cold weather. If you live in England, Scotland or Wales, visit GOV.UK.

How to use this service

You'll receive a Cold Weather Payment automatically if you get a qualifying benefit and live in a postcode area where the temperature is, or forecast to be, zero degrees or below for seven consecutive days.

To find out if your area is due a Cold Weather Payment, enter the first two letters and numbers of your postcode. For example BT71. Click search.
