Warm Heat Payment (Pensioners)

Options
Would people like to post when they start receiving the £200 (+£300) winter fuel payment this year.  Just wondering on the timeline for this year.  I know they have supposedly started paying it, none of the Pensioners in my group have received theirs yet. I know they have until January 2023 I think mine arrived fairly early last year, I did wonder if, since there is extra this year and other groups are also receiving money, it would be paid later?

    Curious was it paid during the same week you received your Pension payment or no connection, just a random week payment?  I was wondering if they do at the same time as a Pension payment, if so, in my case it will be another couple of weeks.  I don’t need it but am Switching banks using a “Switch Offer”, so hoping all goes well.

    A single, £500 winter-fuel payment appeared in my bank account this morning from DWP (Saturday, Nov 26) Not due my monthly state pension for another 3 weeks.

    Me neither, but I got the letter about it late so maybe I'll get the payment late too.

    Those who have it this morning (Sat) are obviously with the few strange banks that post Monday's payments early so there should be quite a few people getting it Sunday night.
