Fairness in qualifying period for increased level of Winter Fuel Allowance

Comment 3rd July 2010

I want the qualifying period for the increased level of winter Fuel Allowance (£400) for OAPs payable at age 80 changed so that all people who are or will be 80 on or before 31st March in any particular year can receive the £400 Winter Fuel Allowance for the preceding autumn/winter period ending on the same date, i.e. someone who turns 80 on 15th February 2012 would be entitled to receive the £400 WFA relating to the autumn/winter of 2011-12.

Why does this matter?

The present system is unfair and may result in unnecessary deaths.
