Those being paid a qualifying disability benefit will be paid automatically from 20 September, with the vast majority of those eligible expected to receive their one-off payment within a couple of weeks by the beginning of October.
Qualifying disability benefits include Disability Living Allowance, Personal Independence Payment, Attendance Allowance, Armed Forces Independence Payment, Constant Attendance Allowance and War Pension Mobility Supplement.
Claimants must have received a payment (or later receive a payment) of one of these qualifying benefits for 25 May 2022 to get the payment.
Those who had confirmed payment of their disability benefit for 25 May are expected to be paid shortly after the payment window opens.
For those awaiting confirmation of their disability benefits on 25 May, or who are waiting to be assessed for eligibility to receive disability benefits, the process may take longer but payments will still be automatic.
