Those already signed up to the pension or Pension Credit will receive the payment automatically.
Others will have to apply, and, to successfully receive the assisting payment, will need to have lived in the UK during the “qualifying week”.
For the 2020-2021 payment, this fell from September 21 to September 27.
Successful applicants should receive their money between November and December.
