Those who were in receipt of one of nine qualifying benefits on May 25 will start receiving the £150 lump sum from September, reports Lancashire Live. Payments will be made per claim, meaning each eligible person in a household will receive the £150. This scheme is one of a number introduced to help people manage the soaring cost of living, with another of these an initiative which will see an estimated 29 million households receive £400 off their energy bills.

. Despite the presence of these schemes, the government has been urged to up its support by the National Institute of Economic and Social Research, after a new report showed the UK is set to enter a recession which will be particularly tough on low income households. It founds that the number of households living pay cheque to pay cheque will nearly double from 3.9 million to 6.8 million – or 25% – in 2024. The research shows that between the impact of inflation and the refusal of the government to raise benefits in line with inflation, the 10% poorest households will be around 5% worse off.
