Winter Fuel Payments

From today millions of pensioners will begin to receive Winter Fuel Payments boosted by £300 and a million people on tax credits will begin to receive their second cost of living payment, supporting vulnerable households with their energy bills this winter.

  • As Britain and the world face global cost of living pressures and rising energy prices, Conservatives are standing by the most vulnerable in our society – including pensioner and low-income households. 
  • That is why from today more than 11 million pensioners will automatically receive their regular Winter Fuel Payment, boosted by an extra £300 this year meaning some pensioner households will receive £600 on top of existing support. A million people on tax credits can also expect to see their second cost of living payment of £324 arrive in their bank accounts over the next week.
  • These extra payments will land automatically and are just one part of the wider £49 billion support package we are delivering – including the £400 to every household to help with rising bills.
