Am I Eligible For Winter Fuel Allowance?

If you were born on or before 25 September 1957, and you were living in the UK for at least one day during the week of 18 to 24 September 2023, (this is called the ‘qualifying week)., you could be eligible to receive between £250 and £600 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, what you may be entitled to and how to claim, visit the gov.uk Winter Fuel Payment website.
