Who can get it
You get this allowance if you get certain payments from us. You don’t need to apply for it.
We’ll assess you for Utilities Allowance when you claim:

- Partner Allowance
- Widow Allowance.
Tell us if you don’t want it.
We’ll pay the allowance with your regular payment. We pay you on or after 20 March, 20 June, 20 September and 20 December each year.
