heating vs eating

Post by Admin on Mon Sep 25, 2017 11:50 am

there was a reference o this via this morning program

A. Winter fuel payments

If you were born on or before 5 January 1953 (and met other qualifying criteria throughout the week commencing 21 September 2015), you’re eligible for the up to £300 winter fuel payment. If you get certain benefits, eg, state pension, pension credit or jobseeker’s allowance, you’ll usually get it automatically – otherwise you may have to claim it. You do that by calling 03459 15 15 15.

B. Cold weather payments

Anyone on certain benefits, eg, specific income support, jobseeker’s allowance, pension credit, gets £25 for every seven days where there are sub-zero temperatures. It’s paid automatically from 1 November this year.

C. Choosing between heating and eating?

If you’re seriously behind, or in general financial hardship, you may be eligible for special tariffs/help.
