    Hi,

    For the winter fuel payment you need to have been born before 5th November 1953, so no being born in 1955 doesn't qualify her.

    There's the warm home discount that's available to those on certain means tested benefits / low income. The criteria for this depends on your energy supplier, if they're part of the scheme. It's £140 and would be given anytime around March 2019 but you have to apply for this and wait to see if you're eligible.
