For Families and Carers : Winter Fuel Payment

If you are over the pension credit qualifying age (currently 60) on the third Monday in September, you can get a winter fuel payment for the following winter.  If you get retirement pension or most other social security benefits, you will get a payment automatically, so most people don’t need to claim.

For details, go to Winter Fuel Payment on GOV.UK.
