    The dates quoted by Robin9 relate to winter 2017/2018.

    AFAIK the qualifying (i.e. born on or before) date for winter 2018/2019 has not yet been published by the Government.

    If you are receiving State Pension, or another social security benefit, you should receive it automatically at the qualifying age-you don't need to claim it.

    I'm going to receive state pension from late August however yet again I have just missed out on the winter fuel payment for next winter as the qualifying cutoff for my birthday is early August 2018.

    My brother is two years older than me has had the payment for years.....?
