Are you worried about the cost of keeping warm this winter?

Energy costs are a concern for many older people in the UK as the winter freeze approaches, Citizens Advice has warned.

Winter Fuel Payment or Winter Fuel Allowance is an annual payment to help with heating costs, made to households with someone over Pension Credit age.

Cold Weather Payments are made to eligible people when the weather is very cold.  You can get £25 a week when the average temperature has been‚ or is expected to be‚ 0°C or below for 7 days in a row (between 1 November and 31 March).

Is this allowance enough for you to heat your home and keep warm.  Are you aware of your entitlement to these payments?
