How much Winter Fuel Payment could I get?
This Age UK explanation lays it out well: https://www.ageuk.org.uk/information-advice/money-legal/benefits-entitlements/winter-fuel-payment/
If you were born on or before 25 September 1956, you could get between £100 and £300 to help with your bills in winter this year. The exact amount depends on your age and whether other people in your household also qualify.
You’ll usually get a smaller payment if you live in a care home or nursing home and don’t get one of the following benefits:
- Pension Credit
- income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
- income-related Employment and Support Allowance
- Income Support.
If you live in a care home or nursing home and you do get any of these benefits, then you’re not entitled to a Winter Fuel Payment.
