How do I get my £200 alternative fuel payment?

Update 24/01/23

UKIFDA has announced that the government will start paying the £200 alternative fuel payments from February 6th 2023.

Heating oil customers should be aware of the following:

  • Customers have been identified using an off the gas grid database and recent census information.
  • The majority of customers will receive their £200 automatically via their electricity supplier starting on February 6, in a similar fashion to other recent government payments (direct debit, credit to account or voucher).
  • There will be some small exceptions – for example customers that don’t have an electricity account or those that use oil but live in a gas grid area. These customers will need to apply via an online portal which will be open in February alongside a post code checker.
