When the temperature tumbles we know that being warm doesn't just feel good, it's also a key part of staying fit and healthy. At CABA we understand that you might hesitate to turn up the thermostat if you're worried about how to pay the bills, especially with the expense of the festive season looming ahead too.

Warm up with CABA

We recognise that staying warm over winter is so important to your health that we commit to making a winter fuel payment every year to those who need it. Early in January we pay over £200 to enable the household to stay warm without worrying about the cost of the fuel bill. The payment from CABA is in addition to any winter fuel payment you may receive from the government, it doesn't affect any other benefits you may receive and it's paid whatever the weather's like over the winter.

No forms to complete

If you receive Pension Credit, then you qualify automatically for the payment. We don't need to assess your financial position and there's no need to fill out a form - just send us a copy of your Pension Credit Notice along with a copy of your most recent bank statement to the following name and address and we'll organise the payment to you:

Faye Wills
8 Mitchell Court
Castle Mound Way
Central Park
CV23 0UY

Please include your contact phone number, your ICAEW number if you have one and your date of birth so we can identify you on our records.

Alternatively you can apply online.
