Do you live on pension credit and own your own home? Then you might have been miffed when the pre-Christmas fuel poverty payment wasn’t coming your way.
Then only those on pension credit and income support could claim the cash. But an ever generous Executive have said that if you are on pension credit and own your own home the cash could be coming your way.
That means that an extra 50,000 people in Northern Ireland will benefit from the whopping £150 cash injection…with 900 litres of home heating oil clocking in at just under £280 earlier this week, 50,000 households will be whooping with joy, or just feeling underwhelmed…and asking why this is coming along when the weather has gotten that bit milder. Timing appears to be a skill the Executive has yet to learn.
