    Yes it does qualify, you need to contact them and let them know you were declared bankrupt with the case number and the contact details of the OR dealing with it. You also need to make sure you've told the OR dealing with your bankruptcy about the debt.

    Don't forget there's a standing charge to be paid with most gas / electric providers.

    How often are you topping up?
