Winter Fuel Payment

Has anybody had theirs yet? Any idea when it's coming? I use mine for a load of coal and need to get moving on this soon.


  • Last year my letter was dated 15 November and paid into my Bank on the 19 November - this year no letter received as yet!

    They have updated the 0845 number to Telephone: 03459 15 15 15 (local rate or maybe free if you have a call package)
  • Mine was exactly as above last year, I did think we received it on the same date each year...but not received as yet

    They must be hanging onto it longer this year then :(
  • First batch of payments I believe were released on the 15th November so should start hitting accounts next week.

    Hope this helps.
  • Had letter last week, paid into account this week

    Ours was late November last year, later than in previous years.

    No letters as of early this week (we are away at the moment) and nothing in the bank.
