Applications for £200 towards energy bills this winter are now open on the Wrexham Council website.

Earlier this year, Welsh Government announced that in addition to the Winter Fuel Payment that is normally paid to pensioners, eligible households will also be able to claim this one-off payment of £200 to help pay energy bills this winter.

This is regardless of how you pay your bill – either on a pre-payment meter, direct debit or quarterly, and whether you are using on- or off-grid fuel.

If you are on the Council Tax reduction scheme, Wrexham Council will be writing to you to invite you to apply for the payment and the online application process will open on September 26.

The closing date from applications will be February 28 and payment should be made to eligible applicants by March 31.

To be eligible for the one-per-household payment you must have received one of the qualifying benefits between September 1, 2022 and January 31, 2023, be responsible for paying the fuel bill in your house, and apply before February 28, 2023.

You can find more information about eligibility on the Welsh Government’s winter fuel support scheme 2022 to 2023 page.

To check if you are eligible for the £200 payment, visit the Wrexham Council website.
