What's the Winter Fuel Payment?

The Winter Fuel Payment is a tax-free payment to help older people pay for their winter fuel bills. If you were born on or before 5 October 1954, you may receive between £100 and £300 in a tax-free payment between November and December each year.

If you think you qualify but haven't received a payment, you can make a claim by calling the GOV.UK helpline on 0800 731 0160.
