Winter Fuel Payment Claim Form 2023 to 2024

WINTER FUEL PAYMENT -  The form to claim a Winter Fuel Payment for winter 2023 to 2024 will be available at a later date.

You can claim for winter 2023 to 2024 from 18 September 2023.

If you were born before 26 September 1956 you could get between £250 and £600 to help you pay your heating bills. This is known as a ‘Winter Fuel Payment’.

The amount you get includes a ‘Pensioner Cost of Living Payment’. This is between £150 and £300. You’ll get this extra amount in both winter 2022 to 2023 and winter 2023 to 2024. This is in addition to any other Cost of Living Payments you get with your benefit or tax credits.

This guide is also available in Welsh (Cymraeg).

Most people get the Winter Fuel Payment automatically if they’re eligible.

If you’re eligible, you should have had a letter in October or November saying how much you’ll get.

If you did not get a letter but you think you’re eligible, check if you need to make a claim.

Most eligible people were paid in November or December. Find out what to do if you have not been paid.

  • help from the Household Support Fund, if you’re eligible under your local council’s rules - check on your local council’s website
