Cold Weather Payment Scheme: Could you be eligible for help with heating costs?

Other Government help which often goes unclaimed include Pension Credit, Housing Benefit, Council Tax Support and Child Benefit.

Benefits like Pension Credit can also open the door to additional free benefits like NHS prescriptions and a free TV licence for people over 75.

Cold Weather Payments should be paid automatically, but people are advised to talk to someone at their pension centre or Jobcentre Plus office if they haven’t received them before.

People who think they should qualify for it, but haven’t received anything should contact the DWP.
