I thought you could only claim if you reached retirement age before leaving the U.K. But it seems to have changed.
I think this is the relevant bit in the article I linked which indicates that the change was only made this year.

'Until this year people who lived outside the UK could not claim the Winter Fuel Payment. If they had already qualified and claimed it in the UK they could keep it if they moved, but they could not claim it for the first time from outside the UK.'
