Government doubles Winter Energy Payments amid Coronavirus pandemic

The Government has announced a multi-million dollar income support package amid the Coronavirus pandemic to try and keep the NZ economy afloat.

Part of this will see the Winter Energy Payment doubled as part of the package - so is now $1,400 for couples and $900 for single people - ensuring 850,000 people stay warm throughout the winter flu season.

What is the Winter Energy Payment?

The Winter Energy Payment is an extra payment to help with the cost of heating your home over the winter months. The payment is paid from 1 May to 1 October every year.

You don't need to apply for the Winter Energy Payment – if you’re eligible, you’ll get it automatically along with your other regular payments from the Government.
