The deadline for eligible households in Flintshire to apply for a £200 Winter Fuel Payment is fast approaching.

This scheme is part of a £90 million Welsh Government support package aimed at alleviating the impact of rising energy costs and the cost-of-living crisis.

The payment is in addition to the winter fuel payment offered by the UK government and is specifically targeted towards low-income households to help those who struggle during the winter months to pay their energy bills.

According to the Welsh government, “families should not have to choose between heating and eating.”

To be eligible for the payment, the household must include an applicant or their partner who received one of the qualifying benefits between September 1, 2022, and January 31, 2023.

The eligible benefits include: Income Support, Income-Based Job Seekers Allowance, Employment and Support Allowance, Universal Credit, Working Tax Credits, Child Tax Credits, Pension Credit, Personal Independence Payment (PIP), Disability Living Allowance (DLA), Attendance Allowance, Carers Allowance, Contributory Benefits, Council Tax Reduction Scheme (CTRS), Armed Forces Independence Payment, Constant Attendance Allowance, and War Pension Mobility Supplement.

Additionally, households that have a qualifying person living with them, even if they do not receive these benefits, may also be eligible for the payment.

How to apply

All applications must be received by 5pm on 28 February 2023.

Once your registration form has been received and processed, you will receive an email advising if it is successful or not. If it has been refused, you will be advised why.
