Warm Home Discount Scheme

For winter 2016 to 2017, you could get £140 off your electricity bill through the Warm Home Discount Scheme.

The money isn’t paid to you - it’s a one-off discount on your electricity bill between October and April.

The discount won’t affect your Cold Weather Payment or Winter Fuel Payment.

You qualify for the discount if on 10 July 2016 all of the following applied:

  • your electricity supplier was part of the scheme
  • your name (or your partner’s) was on the bill
  • you were getting the Guarantee Credit element of Pension Credit (even if you get Savings Credit as well)

If you don’t qualify

You may be able to apply directly to your electricity supplier for help if you don’t get the Guarantee Credit element of Pension Credit but:

  • you’re on a low income
  • you get certain means-tested benefits

Check with your supplier to see if you’re eligible and how to apply.
