promised £60

On checking my bank account I see that nice man Mr. Darling has kept his promise to give me, and other mature folk, £60 extra to compensate for the rising cost of energy. What a lovely fellow!

This gesture will of course be seized upon by the energy companies to increase their charges further, as clearly, older citizens can now afford it.

If you are over 65 and on a government pension, then you should have got the £200 plus £10 bonus at Christmas time.Those over 75 got £300 plus £10 bonus (I think!). The £60 extra payment for the people eligible should get it this month, I got mine last week.

Other people on certain benefits should receive a cold weather payment, which is different to the extra £60 payment.

The Xmas £300 was for the over 80's, I didn't get it being only 76! I have received the £60 though.

My wife and myself got our £60 each last week. I have received 3 £25 cold weather payments.
The winter fuel payment was £250 which I received in November.

Winter fuel payment is paid at 60. Now increased to £250 from this year. You have to apply for it if they don't send you a form. Download a claim form here
