THOUSANDS of hard-up households in 280 postcodes are due up to £25 in cold weather payments.

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) hands out the extra cash to households on low-incomes.

Those eligible will have the cash paid directly into their bank accounts within 14 days.

The payment is made automatically, including to those on Universal Credit and pension credit.

Commenting on the triggering of the scheme this week, Paul Maynard, Minister for Pensions said: "Cold weather payments provide much needed support to households when colder weather kicks in, so that families reduce anxiety about bills.

We've listed all the postcodes that are now eligible for one cold weather payment worth £25.

You can also check if a payment is due in your area by entering your postcode in the government's cold weather payment checker.
