For the 2017-2018 Fuel Allowance season, you have the option of getting your total allowance paid in two lump sums.
To get your Fuel Allowance in two lump sums you must fill in form FA CPF 1 (pdf). This form is also available from your local post office, Intreo Centre or Social Welfare Branch Office. You can also text FORM FUELCHANGE followed by your name and address to 51909. To get the first lump sum in October 2017, you must submit your completed form before 15 September 2017.
