Re: Winter Fuel Allowance

I think you get it if you were on incapacity now esa and at least one other benefit such as DLA. I'll find letter I had and try to post it on here.

Re: Winter Fuel Allowance

Just looked at website again. Trust me to think of it when office is closed. I'll phone on Monday and make my claim.

No, I don't think that's right about pension credit wishbone, because if you look back to post 12, Scot explains that.

the letter they sent me last month definitly stated I could not have it because I was not claiming pension credit Mups.I was replying to post 18 about the warm home allowance which is not the same as fuel allowance, which everyone of pension age gets regardless.

If you are not claiming other benefits you have to claim. If you are receiving certain benefits you do not need to claim. That is the impression I get.

I think I'm getting muddled up between Warm Home Discount & Winter Fuel Allowance. Sorry wishbone.

Re: Winter Fuel Allowance

Aye You're right Mups...Everyone born on or before 5th Jan 1953 gets the WINTER FUEL PAYMENT....but The WARM HOME DISCOUNT can only be paid from Your electricity supplier if You qualify..IE on some kind of benefit etc'...confusing isn't it?
