Cold Weather Payment Replacement Plans Would Double Payment Rate in Scotland | Personal Finance | Finance

Cold Weather Payment Replacement Plans Would Double Payment Rate in Scotland |  Personal Finance |  Finance

The Scottish Government has announced the launch of its consultation on Low Income Winter Heating Assistance. Like the Cold Weather Payment, this decentralized government benefit scheme aims to help low-income people who need financial support to pay their energy and heating bills this winter. Under Low Income Winter Heating Assistance, households receiving means-tested benefits would automatically receive £50 per winter.

The public and relevant stakeholders in the new payment, estimated to cost £20 million, can now share their thoughts with the Holyrood government.

As part of the consultation, experts warned MSPs that an estimated 100,000 families will find themselves in fuel poverty in the near future as a result of rising energy bills.

However, the government believes the new payment will help around 400,000 households to implement it.

NOT MISSING

Ben Macpherson MSP, the Scottish Minister for Social Security and Local Government, explained why replacement of the Cold Weather Payment is necessary.

Mr Macpherson said: “Our proposed new benefit, Low Income Winter Heating Assistance, gives the 400,000 low-income households currently eligible for Cold Weather Payments the security of paying £50 a year.

“This will be an investment of around £20 million a year to support people in the cost of heating their homes in winter, regardless of the weather or temperature.

“While Cold Weather Payments have been a valuable support for some during periods of very cold weather, there have been some years when payments have been negligible.

“The current requirement for temperatures to be recorded or predicted below zero degrees Celsius for seven days in a row to trigger a £25 payment does not provide people with any security.

“In addition, we know that the location of the 27 weather stations in Scotland that need to reach this temperature has raised questions about the equality and fairness of payments in cold weather.

“In some years, only one or no payments have been initiated. If winters get wetter and warmer, as predicted, this could also reduce the number of Cold Weather payments in the future.

“We want people to have certainty about receiving payment regardless of the winter temperature or where they live in Scotland.”

According to Age UK, around 150,000 elderly households are likely to find themselves in fuel poverty this winter.

The charity reports that this number could rise to 1.1 million by spring 2022 if no further action is taken by the UK government.

In particular, Age UK is looking for the UK government to provide more support through the Cold Weather Payment, as well as other benefits such as the Warm Home discount.

One of their recommended proposals is a one-off payment of £50 to anyone eligible for Cold Weather Payments, the same rate proposed for the Low Income Winter Heating Assistance.

Our 5 Favorite Promotional Products of the Week: Burrito Bags, McDonald’s Christmas Merchandise, and More

Our 5 Favorite Promotional Products of the Week: Burrito Bags, McDonald's Christmas Merchandise, and More

We really get into the holiday mood here at PM. By that, we mean our diets are largely cookie-based, our movie selections are typically set in 1990s Chicago, and our homes smell like rich evergreen fields.

It’s pretty sweet, actually. We live here as Buddy the elf. (Which reminds us that we should probably watch “Eleven” tonight.)

However, we don’t just focus on holiday themed promotional items. It would be a shame to overlook so many good products. So while our halls may be decorated, we’re still working on the big picture of the promo industry.

1. Chipotle Foil Gym Bag

Is there a more beautiful sight than a large burrito wrapped in foil? If there is, these eyes haven’t seen it. You can take this bag, modeled after a packaged Chipotle burrito, and stuff it with all the post-workout burritos you want. You deserve it.

2. Mariah Carey’s McDonald’s Merchandise

Another endorsement of McDonald’s celebrity. However, it’s hard to find a more appropriate holiday celebrity than Mariah. All we want for Christmas is one of those hats. The shirt is also pretty rad.

3. Bottle Opener ‘The Hangover’

This bottle opener practically comes with a warning message about what can happen after popping that first cold. Do you have a night of facial tattoos and tiger stealing in you?

4. ‘Mr. Robot Magnet

We love when TV shows rely on the in-show universe for promotional items. It kind of invites us in and makes it feel real. We would like the mr. Robot people probably don’t take to their business, but this is cool anyway.

5. Gritty Art Print

Philadelphia’s favorite son can decorate your home in a very tasteful and modern way with this print. You can show off your Flyers fandom as well as show your way at the Art Museum past the Rocky statue.
