Am I Eligible For Winter Fuel Allowance?

If you were born on or before 26 September 1956, and you were living in the UK for at least one day during the week of 20 to 26 September 2021 (this is the ‘qualifying week’ for 2021-22), you could be eligible to receive between £100 and £300 from the Government to help you pay your heating bills. This is known as a ‘Winter Fuel Payment’. The payments will not affect any other benefits.

To find out more about the criteria, and how to claim, visit the GOV.UK Winter Fuel Payment website.
