To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what provision he has made for the winter fuel payment to be claimed by United Kingdom citizens moving from the United Kingdom to a European economic area country shortly before reaching their sixtieth birthday.[109150]

If a person moves from Great Britain before qualifying for a winter fuel payment, he or she will not be able to receive payments while living in other EEA countries. Whether a person qualifies for a winter fuel payment initially will depend on their personal circumstances, including whether they normally live in Great Britain, during the relevant qualifying week.
