    Hello @emmrald, and welcome to the community. Good to have you with us.
    I don't have a specific answer to your question, but I'm sure we'll be able to find the answer.
    I checked on the internet and found this on qualifying, from the UK Govt site: 
    Eligibility. You qualify for a Winter Fuel Payment if both the following apply: you were born on or before 5 August 1953. you'll be living in the UK for at least one day during the week of 18 to 24 September 2017 - this is called the 'qualifying week'.
    If this doesn't answer your question sufficiently, try the link to the 'What benefits am I entitle to?' forum and have a look there:
    https://community.scope.org.uk/categories/what-benefits-am-i-entitled-to-
    Others will be along in due course who will know more about this than I do, so hang on in with us  :)
    Best wishes to you,
    Richard
