https://www.gov.uk/winter-fuel-payment/overview is for people born before 5/1/52 the other is the cold weather payment which you will only get if you are receiving certain benefits https://www.gov.uk/cold-weather-payment/overview

the £10 in december is what they call a christmas bonus not to do with cold weather or winter fuel (i used to work for dwp )

i would advise you to get in touch with your energy supplier as most have a scheme where they give you £130 off your bill in the winter months if you are getting income related benefits i have qualified for mine and im with npower have a look at this link https://www.gov.uk/the-warm-home-discount-scheme

I think your referring to the payments for those on low income benefits that u get automatically. if the temperature drops below a certain level for a whole week u get an xtra amount in yourbenefits.? I dont know if its still going, or if its replaced by the one off payment of £135 u now have to apply for. I remember getting that a while back.
