Universal Credit UK: Claimants could get extra help this winter | Personal Finance | Finance


This money is not paid to the eligible person, but instead discounted on one’s electricity bill between September and March.

If the supplier provides the household with both gas and electricity, it may be that the discount can be applied to the gas bill instead.

There are two ways to qualify for the Warm Home Discount Scheme, and this includes whether one gets the Guarantee element of Pension Credit (and fulfils certain criteria), or they’re on a low income and meet the energy supplier’s criteria for the scheme.

For the latter group, it’s the energy supplier which decides who gets thee discount, and gov.uk suggests checking with one’s supplier to see if they’re eligible – as well as find out how to apply.
