    Imagine someone holding forth on biology whose only knowledge of the subject is the Book of British Birds, and you have a rough idea of what it feels like to read Richard Dawkins on theology: Terry Eagleton

    No letter, but payment arrived sometime between 3.30am and 6.30 am today!! Couldn't sleep, nothing else to do but check bank statement!!! Looks like they're rushing the payments through now, my mother has also had hers - but no letter.

    Don't know why they bother with the letter each time, unless perhaps it's your first time. It's the payment that counts, not the letter. They should save our money and not write especially as so many people get the payment before the letter anyway.

    Order for oil has gone in. Yippee.

    not today again. It is very late this year. Lots of people want to get their fuel in or know that they can pay for putting an electric fire on

    I think it is a bit later this year. Last year my husband got his on the 19th November, this year it was 25th

    Both our letters came on Thursday 3rd.

    All I need now is my tax refund, it is taking an unusually long time to arrive.

    I deferred my State Pension earlier this year and wondered if I am still eligible for the Winter Fuel Payment?
    Can anyone advise please?

    Yes you are but you actually have to apply/request it, for the first time after that you will receive it automatically.
    Anyone receiving S.P will receive it automatically,

    I rang them and it was sorted
