    If you are not in the core group - who get notified by letter from the DWP - then you should register your interest and, when they send you an email saying the scheme is open, fill out the online form which their email takes you to.

    This secondary scheme is discretionary and once they have allocated all their warm homes cash to applicants then any further registrations will be rejected, so as soon as you get the SCHEME IS OPEN email fill out the form.

    I believe they open applications sometime in the next 3 weeks and if your application is successful pay the £140 in February.

    Also, if you switch suppliers you have to comply with the new supplier's conditions and make another application - don't know if this applies to the core group, though.

    Warm Front was a Government scheme to give free boilers and home insulation, which ended in 2013.

    Do you mean the Warm Home Discount Scheme?

    Mine has been credited to my account today, too.

    It's the first day i hadn't checked, so thanks for that.

    A very healthy balance of £140 currently as i also received the smallest of rebates, last week. My account is running efficiently.


    Thanks E.on.

We're aiming to make all Broader Group payments by 31 May 17. We'll confirm once the payment has been made.

    Core Group customers would have started to receive letters from the Department for Work and Pensions from Thursday, 13 October 16 explaining what will happen. It's important customers follow any instructions in these letters to make sure they receive their payment.

    Hope this is of interest.

    I will certainly consider E.on next time I change utilities Company.

    First Utility have updated me by saying in an email that I will receive my letter by 16 December at the latest.

    Anyone else got any news?

    Another update

    First Utility opened their scheme for the broader group yesterday, BUT they are working through the list of people who registered their interest using the form on their website and expect to have gone through the list by the end of the week.

    They will send and email response this week if they think you are entitled.

    As soon as you get that email fill out the form which it links to.

    Now it's just wait and see but you should know by the end of this week.

    Thank you D_E_M.

    Still no email response from First Utility regarding Broader Group, no doubt they would say they are still going through the list of people who registered an interest.

    I have received the discount in the past when I was a customer of EDF and Sainsbury, I would be annoyed if I didn't get it from First Utility.

    Any luck from anyone else?

    The latest update - no more after this

    The First Utility scheme for the broader group is now open for applications.

    Go to their website - www.first-utility.com - and click on HELP then type in WARM HOME in the box and press enter.

    There is a link in the what looks like purple box that comes up - click on that then fill out the form.

    It looks like they have not sent out emails but the form is there on the website to fill in and submit.

    Maybe they don't want a flood of applications or they don't have a lot of money left to distribute.
