 Pensioners Help With Fuel Bills

There are lots of  help for pensioners with their energy bills. All the below  payments will greatly help our pensioners this winter.

Do check if you qualify for them.


Warm Home Discount

The Warm Home Discount is a government scheme introduced in 2011  to help tackle fuel poverty and provide people with the financial help  needed to stay warm during the winter months

This autumn nearly three million low-income households are eligible for a £150 rebate on their winter electricity bills.

This one-off payment of £150 is just one of a number of schemes that can offer financial help during the colder months.

Please note that if you are living in a mobile or park home, there is a separate application process.

Warm Home Discount Helpline   0800 731 0214 or   Check with your energy supplier to see if you are eligible



Winter Fuel Payments

The Winter Fuel Payment was introduced in 1997 and is an annual tax-free heating allowance of between £100 and £300 made to those over pensionable age who may require assistance with their heating costs during the winter.

The payment  is usually credited to your electricity bill by your supplier, or you will receive a voucher to redeem if you’re a pay-as-you-go customer.

This winter, they will also receive an extra one-off £300 Pensioner Cost of Living Payment, which will be paid as an automatic top-up to the Winter Fuel Payment.

The winter fuel payment is not means-tested, which means you can still qualify if you’re working or claiming benefits.

Check if you’re eligible for the Winter Fuel Payment



 Cold Weather Payments

The Cold Weather Payment is a winter fuel allowance granted by the government to those who meet the qualifying criteria.

If you’re eligible, you could be due a payment of £25 every time the average temperature in your area hits zero degrees celsius or below, for seven or more consecutive days between 1st November and 31st March.

Check if you’re eligible

Over 60s – Boiler Replacement

If you are over 60 but not yet receiving a pension, you will need to be on a means tested benefit to qualify for the Free Boiler.

Benefits include:

Child Benefit¬†¬† ‚Äď ¬†¬† Child & Working Tax Credits ‚Äst¬†¬†¬† Employment & Support Allowance-¬†¬†¬† Housing Benefit

Income Support¬† ‚Äst Job Seekers Allowance¬†¬† ‚Äst Universal Credit


A New Boiler Will Save On Your Fuel Bills !

  • New boilers are now over 90%
  • super-efficient with minimal wastage in heat efficiency.

This means that every pound you pay for gas heating, you actually achieve 90 pence worth of heat.

This compares with the older boilers giving you only 60- 70 pence worth of heat for every pound. Make good sense to upgrade now while the boiler scrappage scheme is still live.

This Government Free boiler scheme has been live since 2013 and has been a massive help for pensioners who cannot afford to change their boilers.
