    warm home discount scheme 15th Mar 12 at 10:24 PM
    if you qualified for the warm home £120 fuel rebate discount this year(2011/12)a reminder that unless you qualified automatically then you will have to re-apply for 2012/13(£130)

    the scheme runs for 4 years,and has to be applied for each year,so after april 6th 2012 contact your supplier to register again.

    all payments for 2011/12 should be made before the end of march,and if it puts your account in credit you can ask for a refund,or lower monthly direct debits if you prefer

    I was with ovo and applied for the warm home discount and was accepted, but due to their appalling customer service and the fact I couldn't speak to anyone had a in home display meter that didn't work I switched back to my old supplier, they are now saying my application will have been cancelled but my existing supplier has said its a government grant I.e not coming from the company themselves are they right and can they do this ? 😊

    The broader group are paid by their supplier, not the government. They are free to apply a cut off date, and to stipulate that you stay with them until it is paid (within reason).

    Many suppliers opened their Warm Home Scheme some weeks ago. As this is generally allocated on a "first come first served" basis you should check with your supplier and put your application in as soon as possible.

    My Dad is with Sainsbury's Energy; their scheme opened weeks ago and I submitted his application right away. We received a confirmation from them the same day.

    I applied to Scottish Power under the broader group and have an expected payment date of 31 May 2017 - but they can't even guarantee that I will be paid !!
    I do meet all of the criteria for the benefit ...

    hi - i've just come across this and was wondering if the beautiful knowledgable people on here could advise...

    my parents energy supplier is First Utility, but under my name (their address) - their household income is way less than £16k - can i still apply for the Warm Home Discount scheme on their behalf if the account is registered under my name?

    looking at the application form, it seems i need to put my details as it is under my name but then the questions don't really relate to me...

    thanks in advanced

    the power companies do not have to make a payment to everyone in the broader group that meets the criteria.
    it is strictly a first come, first served process.
    so if you applies late, you may or may not receive it, depending on how many others have applied.

    I have just tried for my Mam & it was refused, Not sure if I understood the criteria. Her income is below the threshold but she claims no benefits at all (State Pension & Private Pension only)
    What was the reason yours was refused online?

    I thought she could claim under these rules

    Be a customer with a gross annual household income (HHI) of less than £16,190[1] and the account holder is living with mental or physical disability or illness, or there is vulnerability within the home (children living in the house aged 5 or under) or of pensionable age.

    Income is less & she is 75
