Mr Lewis had a call-in on the podcast, from a woman who lives in a park home in Cumbria. She wanted to know if she would have to apply online, particularly as she has elderly neighbours who would struggle to do this.
The financial journalist said in response: “Applications will open in January, so they should open this month. I have no date in January when applications will open.
“At that point, there will be a website where you can apply for the £400. It will be on gov.uk, I’m sure, although I haven’t heard that yet.
“If you do not have access to the web, there will be a helpline that people will be able to call. When I have the information of the exact application process and that helpline, we will of course do it here on the programme.”
