Cold Weather Payments statistics 2013 to 2014

Statistics about the number of Social Fund Cold Weather Payments in Great Britain for the winter 2013 to 2014.

This data is based on the estimated number of benefit units linked to each weather station that is eligible for Cold Weather Payments. It is management information, which means it isn’t quality assured to the same extent as official and national statistics and that there may be some issues with the data, for example, figures are estimates rather than actual figures and may be revised later.

Background

Cold Weather Payments help people to meet their additional heating costs during periods of extreme cold.

Payments are made to those most vulnerable to the cold

  • older people receiving Pension Credit
  • disabled adults and children
  • families with children aged under 5 that are receiving an income-related benefit

Payment is made automatically when the average temperature at the weather station linked to an eligible customer’s postcode has been recorded as, or is forecast to be, 0 degrees celsius or below over 7 consecutive days. There are 92 weather stations used in the Cold Weather Payment scheme for 2013 to 2014.

The payment is £25 for each 7-day day period of very cold weather.

Regulations

The scheme is regulated through the Social Fund Cold Weather Payments (General) Amendment (No.2) Regulations 2013.
