Sorrry Howie should have made that clearer the Warm Home scheme which pays £120 of energy bills is only available to pensioners on tax credits and disabled on means tested benefits, the cold weather payments are added regardless of income so that people such as people such as Peter Stringfellow are embarrased to have the payment made to them,

They are Howie or if they are on a state pension. It's one per household so Les and I have to share ours. He gets it one year and I get it another. Cosy....................not!!!!

warm front and cold weather/winter payments are paid on different criteria...they are distinct from each...as Ian says above
I get one but not the other, as my nest of vipers is still @ work....... {Grin}

Hmmm, tis very confusing is it not {Confused}

So does Les keep warm one year, then you keep warm the following year Melle {Confused}

Im happy to take any payments stringfellow doesnt want {Smile}

Now, our Amy is getting £120 knocked off her gas bill, so that might be the other payment mentioned earlier.
All she had to provide was
A letter confirming she gets top rate mobility
A letter confirming she isnt working
A drs letter basically confirming she is disabled
A photocopy of her blue badge inc date it expires
And a partridge in a pear tree.
All in a small envelope, which couldnt take all the stuff she needed to send {Grin}

Warm Home £120 payments were scheduled to be paid to the first 40,000 people that applied to each energy company so getting all the info in an envelope before everybody else does is important and the list will be carried forward to next year.
Getting onto the scheme early and doing what is necessary to stay there is the only lifeboat still afloat {Unsure}

Pft, youre right there, Tesla is going through that difficult teenager stage {Cry}
Never tidies his room, throws stuff all over the floor, up all night, well, you know how it is {Angry}

However, he is a very good hoover with feet, drop some biscuit crumbs and he clears them up immediately {Grin} {Grin} {Grin}
