Monmouthshire County Council is calling on people to submit their applications for the Winter Fuel payment scheme before 5pm on Tuesday 28th February 2023.
Residents in Monmouthshire are being urged check if they are entitled to claim a one-off payment of £200 towards paying fuel bills before the scheme closes. If you have already received a payment since October please do not apply again as you will not be entitled to any further payments. For more information about the Winter Fuel Payment Scheme, entitlement and how to apply please go to https://www.monmouthshire.gov.uk/winter-fuel-support/
The payment is in addition to the UK Government £400 Energy Bill rebate and the Winter Fuel Payment normally paid to pensioners. It will be one payment per household regardless of whether a person has a pre-payment meter, pays by direct debit or receives quarterly bills. The payment can also be claimed whether someone uses on or off-grid fuel.
Monmouthshire County Council aims to make all payments within 30 days of receiving a valid application.
