PENSIONERS in Huddersfield have been urged to claim winter fuel payments. A reminder to claim the winter fuel payment by March 30 has come from the government. With only eight days to claim, Minister for Pensions reform Stephen Timms, reminded people that they could still benefit from a £200 cash injection to heat their home. Anyone aged 60 or over on or before September 25, 2005, may qualify for their payment, as long as they have claimed by March 30. Eligible households with someone over 80 get a payment of £300.
