Default Winter fuel allowance

I live in USA and am now receiving my UK pension sent to my UK bank account. Am I entitled to a winter fuel allowance? If so how much is it, and where is the form?

My brother lives in Spain and gets it. Is it only for EU countries?

Depending on your age and income you might qualify for a fuel subsidy from your state.

Probably means tested, so limited to US citizens?

Fuel assistance is available to MA residents if they have less than 60% of the median income....it's available to all legal residents, so Green Card holders and other legal immigrants qualify. You have to show proof of income for the lest 3 months and provide a copy of your most recent tax return. You can get a 25% reduction in gas and electricity charges and also lump sums to help pay the bills.
