    Created: 19/01/2024
    News/Events Category: Climate/Environment


    Social Security Scotland started paying out the Winter Heating Payment to eligible clients in December. The annual payment of £55.05 is expected to be paid to the majority of eligible people by the end of January 2024. More than £22m will be paid to around 400,000 people on low incomes, in batches throughout the winter months.

    Winter Heating Payment was first paid in winter 2022-2023 and replaced the DWP Cold Weather Payment. Unlike the DWP benefit it replaces that was dependent on the weather being sufficiently cold for a sustained period of time, Winter Heating Payment guarantees that everyone identified as requiring additional support will receive a payment every year, no matter the weather.
