Cold Weather Payment scheme just around the corner – are you eligible?

As well as the Cold Weather Payments Scheme, pensioners and low income families may be able to qualify for the Warm Home Discount Scheme which is a £140 rebate usually knocked off their bill by the end of March.

Meanwhile, the Winter Fuel Payment could mean an extra £100 to £300 this winter and is for people born on or before September 26, 1955.

£16billion worth of benefits go unclaimed every year because people don’t know what they are entitled to, or perhaps feel that there is still a stigma attached to asking for help.

As well as claiming everything one is eligible for, there are other things households can do to keep energy costs down this winter.
