As costs rise, payments are part of a support package for families.

More than eight million eligible households receiving the means-tested benefit received the first of two automatic cost-value payments of £326 from 14 July. A second means-tested payment of £324 will be issued later this year.

From 1 October 2022, a new energy price guarantee will mean that an average household will pay no more than £2,500 per year on their energy bill for the next two years.

News of the new guarantee was immediately followed by the death of the Queen, leaving few questions about support.

More information about measures to help homes and businesses is expected this week.

People are also being urged to beware of fraudsters who are hoping for a living payment.

The payment will be automated, so people should pay attention to messages and emails by fraudsters asking for their personal details.
