Pension Age Winter Heating Payment consultation: easy read

This consultation is to gather evidence on people’s views of the current benefit, consider how we could improve the system already in place and ask if the policy intent set out will best meet the needs of those it aims to help.

Getting the payment

We plan to pay people PAWHP once a year as a cash payment into their bank account.

People will not need to claim the benefit.

It will be paid automatically if:

  • they get a DWP benefit, including their state pension
  • they used to get the WFP
