Winter Fuel Payment: caseload and household figures

This series brings together all documents relating to Winter Fuel Payment caseload and household figures.


  1. Documents

Due to a data issue with European Economic Area (EEA) cases, we were unable to publish the 2012 to 2013 EEA caseload figures in the Winter Fuel Payment: caseload and household figures, 2012 to 2013 release on 11 September 2013 when the figures were shown as ‘unavailable’. This issue is now resolved and EEA caseload figures were released on 1 October 2013. The revisions were handled in line with standard UK Statistics Authority guidelines.

Further statistics are available on Winter Fuel payments by EEA country and Switzerland. These provide data on:

  • the number of payments made to eligible individuals
  • total expenditure by country
