Winter fuel payments

DescriptionThe Winter Fuel Payment is a tax free payment to help older people keep warm during winter. It is provided by the government's Social Fund. The amount you can get depends on your circumstances, and some people who already receive certain benefits will be paid automatically.

Visit the GOV.UK website to find out if you can get these payments and if you'll need to claim. Or contact the Winter Fuel Payments helpline.
