The postcode areas affected are BT24-26, BT30-35 and BT60-71.

Only those qualifying customers living in these postcode areas will receive the £25 payment.  The Department for Communities will make the payments automatically and there is no need to make a claim.

The Cold Weather Payment is available when the average temperature is recorded, or is forecast to be zero degrees centigrade or below, for a period of seven consecutive days.
