    Does that mean my lodger would be eligible as she is on JSA and housing benefit....?

    Postcode search on that page two thirds down.

    I got an extra £10 this month from DLA but looks like i should be eligible for the cold weather payment too

    I am claiming income support and have two children and i have received 25 quid every wednesday since 31st dec. And i will continue to receive this if the met office says the weather is going to be below freezing or there abouts.

    Such a stupid thing to say, that's right, let us take all the money off the disabled people and give it to the able bodied workers.

    Cheers useful for my sister

    My partner does go out to work but I should still be entitled to a cold weather payment as have MS and receive DLA. I don't choose not to work my health dictates that.

    Yeah, while we pay our bills, you lot can keep on getting handed everything on a plate, and still be able to go to the pub every weekend.

    It isnt just those who are disabled that receive this. Read the list. It was therefore not necessarily a stupid thing to say...
