The exact date you need to check for £600 Winter Fuel Payment in your bank account from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has been revealed. It follows as millions of people are currently in the middle of receiving the sum.

Most people should have received the DWP Winter Fuel Payment automatically in November or December. If the money has yet to hit your account, and you believe you’re eligible, you should contact Winter Fuel Payment Centre after January 26.

You can get a Winter Fuel Payment if you were born before 25 September 1957. However, you will not be eligible if you have been in hospital getting free treatment for more than a year or need permission to enter the UK, reported.


The payment will also be given to those who live in a care home. You will not be eligible if you get Pension Credit, Income Support, income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA) or income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) or if you lived in a care home for the whole time from June 26 to September 24, 2023.

You’ll get a letter in October or November telling you how much Winter Fuel Payment you’ll get. If you live alone or no one you live with is eligible for the Winter Fuel Payment, you’ll get either £500 if you were born between September 25, 1943 and September 24, 1957 or £600 if you were born before September 25, 1943.
