Winter Fuel Payments

Those who you support and who were born on or before 5 April 1954 could get between £100 and £300 to help towards paying their heating bills; this is known as a ‘Winter Fuel Payment’.

If a person usually gets a Winter Fuel Payment automatically it is because they are eligible and they also get the State Pension or another social security benefit (not Housing Benefit, Council Tax Reduction, Child Benefit or Universal Credit).  However, if a person is eligible, but they do not get paid automatically, they will need to make a claim.
