Winter Fuel Payments

Winter Fuel Payments are paid If you were born on or before 5 November 1953 and you could get between £100 and £300 to help you pay your heating bills.

Eligible residents in Inverclyde will usually get a Winter Fuel Payment automatically if you get the State Pension or another social security benefit.  However, you’ll need to make a claim if you’ve not had it before and any of the following apply – you do not get benefits or a State Pension; you only get Universal Credit, Housing Benefit, Council Tax Reduction or Child Benefit; you get benefits or a State Pension but live in Switzerland or an EEA country.

If you were born on or before 5 November 1953 you could get between £100 and £300 to help you pay your heating bills. This is known as a ‘Winter Fuel Payment’.

You usually get a Winter Fuel Payment automatically if you are eligible and you get the State Pension or another social security benefit (not Housing Benefit, Council Tax Reduction, Child Benefit or Universal Credit).

If you’re eligible but do not get paid automatically, you will need to make a claim.
