How to Apply for Winter Fuel Payment in Spain 2012 / 2013

 

Good news for British expats living in Spain, claiming winter fuel payment.

Thanks to a judgement of the European Court more expats in Spain (and other UE countries)  will be eligible for Winter Fuel Payments (WFP) this year. In previous years WFPs have only been made to former UK residents who qualified for the payment before leaving the UK and who are now living in the European Economic Area including Spain.

This year you may be eligible to receive WFP if you have a “genuine and sufficient” link with the UK. Several factors are considered in order to assess, for example how long someone has lived and worked in the UK and whether they receive UK State Pension or other benefits.

In general, any UK citizen who has reached the current State Pension age for women (those born on or before 5 July 1951) AND who have a genuine and sufficient link with the UK can apply for WFP this year (even if they are still working)!
