Warm Home Discount

Postby moonhare » Thu Dec 20, 2012 1:03 pm

Hello Everyone,

I'm sure you may all know about this already, but I didn't , so I thought I'd post this here..........

The six main energy suppliers are offering a winter payment of £130.00 towards energy bills to eligible people....i.e...if you claim particular benefits and/or have certain disabilities...... and Fibromyalgia for one, is an eligible disability...as I found out this morning.

The deadline for claiming varies, some give until March, but others like British Gas give only until the end of December - so the sooner you apply the better.


It's really worth contacting your supplier to see if this is for you - you have to be receiving your power from the supplier you contact at time of application.

When you call, they will need certain details such as name, address, D.O.B, What benefits you receive (and how much)
and your N.I number.

Hope this helps. :goodluck2:

I checked with eon, it's only for people on certain benefits / tax credits etc.
Seems so unfair that we struggle to work with our problems and get no help

Thank you for that!!! I didnt know anything about it but i have just rung and i do qualify for it, also my elderly parents have also just called and they will be getting this too. I am with british gas and she was saying most of the other energy suppliers have limited places for this payment but british gas dont so if you qualify you wont be turned away as long as you register before the end of dec!!! Thank you so much any help like this can mmake one hell of a difference.

Yes,
it is so unfair that we have to conform to be receiving certain benefits and/or have certain disabilities and I'm so sorry for that , but I'm so glad to hear that some of you have already had positive results after checking it out! As Millymoodoo says, it makes one heck of a difference!
:fingerscrossed: for everyone!

Good luck to anyone who is eligible for this , hope you all get in to the scheme by the end of December deadline. Unfortunatly my supplier doesn't have a scheme so its a :nono: from me too.

Just glad it will be really useful to some......... was just saying to OH how much our energy bills had gone up since I came off work although I try to keep the heat running at a minimum rather than the full blast I would like it to be at.

Lets hope we have a mild winter
