Winter Fuel Payment: Britons should receive sum by this month – what to do if not

Every year, those over 65 will receive between £100 and £300 during the cold winter months. Britons should have received their sum this month – here’s what you need to do if you haven’t received yours.

Winter Fuel Payments are made every year by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) to those over 65 to help them meet additional heating costs.

People under 80 years old should get £200 while those over this age will receive a payment of £300.

It’s paid automatically, but anyone who hasn’t received a payment yet should get in touch as the mid January deadline is drawing near.

It can be a lifeline to people on the state pension and those who are struggling to make ends meet and once an application has been made, people shouldn’t have to do it again.

Applicants must have also lived in the UK for at least one day during the week of September 20 to 26, 2021 to qualify.

However, people could still be entitled to a payout if they now live in Switzerland or the European Economic Area (EEA).

Although most payments are made in November and December, January 14 is the absolute deadline.

If anyone hasn’t yet received a payment, they can go to the Government website and search for Winter Fuel Payments.

The Cold Weather Payment Scheme runs between November 1 and March 31.

People who are eligible include those on:

  • Universal Credit
  • Income Support
  • Income based Jobseeker’s Allowance
  • Employment Support Allowance
  • Pension Credit
  • Support for Mortgage Interest
