11 million Winter Fuel Payments and Pensioner cost of living payments made so far

As at shortly before Christmas over 11 million Winter Fuel Payments and Pensioner Cost of Living Payments have been made to pensioners across the UK so far this winter, helping pensioners with their energy bills.

  • In the face of cold weather and increased global gas prices it is right we put support in place to ensure vulnerable households can heat their homes. 
  • That is why the government has delivered 11.6 million Winter Fuel Payments and Pensioner Cost of Living Payments to pensioners across the UK so far this winter, meaning over 99 per cent of eligible pensioners have already received up to £600 to help with their energy bills since the rollout began in November.
  • These payments are just one part of the wider support package the government is  delivering to help with rising bills – with remaining payments being delivered by 13 January.
