    Simple terms Nope.

    We did try to get extra payments but the then minister Ms Eagle wrote back terse get a job, stop moaning all the time or use your DLA.

    Winter Fuel Payment getting paid

    The Winter Fuel Payment is automatically given to those who are eligible.

    Some people will get paid at different times than others. If you do not get a payment by the end of December call The Pension Service in January.
