If you were born on or before 5 August 1953 you could get between £100 and £300 to help you pay your heating bills. This is known as a Winter Fuel Payment.You usually get a Winter Fuel Payment automatically if you’re eligible and you get the State Pension or another social security benefit (not Housing Benefit, Council Tax Reduction, Child Benefit or Universal Credit).

  • If you’re eligible but don’t get paid automatically, you’ll need to make a claim
  • You have until 31 March 2018 to claim for winter 2017 to 2018.

Most payments are made automatically between November and December. You should get your money by 15 January 2018. If the money isn’t paid into your account before then, call the office that pays your benefits - their details are on any letters they may have sent you.

Any Money You May Receive Will Not Affect Any Of Your Other Benefits.
