'The winter fuel payment'
Are you, or is someone you know, struggling to pay your energy bills? Vulnerable older people are particularly at risk at this time of year. With energy prices at all time high, it's important to know that e
very household with someone born on or before 26 September 1955 is entitled to help towards their winter energy costs. Under the winter fuel payment scheme, provided you have lived in the UK for at least one day between 20 and 26 September 2021, regardless of income, you can claim a tax-free winter fuel payment
of between £100 and £300.
