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 August 1953, 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'll need to make a claim by calling GOV.UK helpline on 0800 731 0160.
