Winter Energy Payment
The Winter Energy Payment is an extra payment to help with the cost of heating your home over the winter months.
You don't need to apply – if you’re eligible you’ll get the Winter Energy Payment automatically along with your other regular payments from us.
Your first July 2018 payment will be a part payment. The second payment will be for the full amount.
We pay you for the week (or 2 weeks if you get NZ Super) that's just been. You won't get the full amount in your first July payment as it’s part way through the pay period.
