Winter Fuel Payments

Did you know you could be eligible for Winter Fuel Payments if you were born on or before 5 October 1954? You could receive money towards your heating bills from the government – you could be entitled to between £100 and £300.

Are you wondering, “when is Winter Fuel Payment made?” You will receive your Winter Fuel Payment automatically, so you do not need to claim if you are eligible by your date of birth and already receive either a state pension or you are already receiving another social security benefit (not housing benefit).

Payments are automatically paid to you and it is worth knowing that any Winter Fuel Payments you receive will not affect your other benefits. To find out more, visit the government website:
