Expats to get Winter Fuel Allowance

Expats to get Winter Fuel Allowance
An EU court has ruled that the Government must pay the Winter Fuel Allowance to all expats of a pensionable age.

Previously the Government was only required to pay allowances to British people living abroad if they reached a pensionable age in the United Kingdom before moving abroad.

The EU court ruling means all pensioners living abroad, who were once British citizens, could now claim for the allowance, potentially costing the Government an additional £75 million.
