Sep 05, 2008

Hull North MP Diana Johnson has urged older people in Hull to apply for Winter Fuel Payments as quickly as possible in order to get them by Christmas.

Over-60s who have not received a Winter Fuel Payment before and who are not receiving State Pension or another social security benefit - other than Housing Benefit, Council Tax Benefit and Child Benefit - need to apply.

Those claiming by 19 September should receive payments before Christmas.

Diana Johnson MP said: “As the summer ends, we need to plan for the colder months ahead.
