Cold Weather payment is an automatic payment for people on certain types/levels of benefit entitlement and can take account if you have had a baby or a child under 5 lives with you. Paid when, if over a set period, average temperature in your area is recorded as, or forecast to be, zero degrees Celsius or below over 7 consecutive days.
