£140 off Your Electric Bill

Money Saving

Every year the energy companies are obliged to help the most vulnerable in society .They run a scheme for people who maybe are disabled or on a low income . There are numerous ways of being eligable and its not necessarily down to your income.Applications open on October 12th 2020 and I'd suggest you contact your supplier to see if they participate with the scheme.

I assume you’re not eligible if youve got a pay as you go meter? and usually only eligible if you are on universal credit or some form of benefits 🙄

No , if your on a prepayment meter they send you a letter , you then go to your post office and they scan the barcode on the letter and load your card or key the £140 . On the eligibility part I'll give you some examples of what can make you eligable . Under 5's in the home, if your classed as being in fuel poverty , you are classed as being in fuel poverty if your paying more than 10% of your earnings on your energy billss. What I would suggest Sarah is contact your energy company and 1st ask do you do the warm home discount ? then if they do go through your circumstances and the worse that happens is your not eligable and the best is you get something which you didn't know about .

stuartsmith544 the warm home discount scheme for gas is only for people on universal credit or claiming other benefits, I’ve looked into it before.. so if it is the same scheme for electric, surely the rules will be the same 🤔
