Cost of Living payments scam

There are people attempting to get personal information from customers by sending out texts suggesting that customers are eligible for Cost of Living payments.

If you've had a message asking you to apply or contact someone about the payment, this might be a scam.

If you're eligible for Cost of Living payments:

  • you'll be paid automatically
  • you do not need to apply for payment
  • you do not need to call or speak to anyone

The payment is automatic. DWP will never ask for personal details by text or email.
