€125 will be paid to the recipients.

The once off fuel allowance payment of 125 euro will be paid to social welfare recipients from today.

Minister for Social Protection, Heather Humphreys, has announced that the €125 once-off Fuel Allowance payment will be paid to 372,000 households from today.

The payment, on top of regular Fuel Allowance, was agreed as part of the government’s €505 million package aimed at mitigating the effects of rising energy costs.

Households will receive the payment in their bank account this week, depending on their particular social welfare scheme.

The Fuel Allowance, which is a means-tested payment, is paid to 372,000 pensioners, widows, widowers, jobseekers, lone-parents and people with disabilities.

Minister Humphreys commented:“I’m acutely conscious that the rising cost of living is causing considerable concern for families.

“We have all felt it in recent months - through our bills, at the petrol station and in the supermarket.

“And unfortunately, the situation is not being helped by the horrific war unfolding in Ukraine," she added.
