PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) recently announced that more than eight million households across the UK will receive a cash payment from next month to ease the rising cost of living pressures. From July 14, the first instalment of the £650 will begin to land in bank accounts, continuing to the end of the month. People who claim both a means-tested benefit and Tax Credits from HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC), will receive the £326 from DWP next month. Claimants who only receive either Working Tax Credits or Child Tax Credit will receive the first of their two payments later this year - a date has still to be announced.

This focuses on the upcoming payment for £326 because the qualifying date for the Autumn payment has not been announced and claimants’ circumstances may change between now and then. The payment depends on your household circumstances: If you claim as an individual for any of the qualifying means-tested benefits - you will get one payment for £326 in July If you, claim as a couple for any of the qualifying means-tested benefits - you will get one payment for £326 in July Essentially, this is the equivalent of one payment per claim. Mixed households Here's an example of a mixed household to help you understand who will qualify for the July payment. Four people live in a mixed household, two are claiming a qualifying benefit jointly as a couple, the other two adults have two separate claims.
