This has been going on for years!! My previous suppliers never told me, tell your parents please, they really need this boost.

I got it last year with british gas but i apparently don't qualify this year with nPower because i don't have any disability related components on my benefits.
This government will probably get rid of this freebie soon enough so you had all better get it while you can!
Even works if u or any one suffers eczema
Waste of time if you work for a living.
I got it last year do I need to apply this year?
Lazy and don't have a job? Here's some more cash off.

Where do you see this? Can't find anywhere that confirmed this.
A little harsh brushing all claimants with the same brush! Don't worry though, your myopic knee-jerk comment probably won't be the only one!

Just in case you're wondering, no, I can't claim - but I can understand the reason and wider benefits of such a scheme.

Voted Hot

Sorry, but the average wage is 26k. Also, this is a household calculation and not based on one person.

Personally I appreciate schemes like this as it ensures money goes toward a guaranteed service such as utilities. Ensuring people keep warm during winter in accommodation which are a lot of the time sub standard for people supported by the government gets my vote.

I don't mind when the taxes I pay go to such schemes.

Oooo I could fart on your face,
I have a pay as you go mobile and pay as you go sim.
I don't pay sky too!! I'm with talk talk for home and broadband.
Do one, not everyone has money to splash like you or your MPs
cheers op, going to give it a try. I work full time but earn less than £16 k, so will be appreciated if received.
My mum is with Eon and always got this till last year when it was stopped due to loss of pension credit. Was reading Daily Mail online one day and there was a link to a site which in turn told you to contact your supplier. So, on Eon's website there is a form to fill in, and as I always say, "they can only say no, so try" and so I did and she has received a letter saying she is entitled after all and will receive the funds within 12 weeks.
Not all energy companies can pay this, they need to be part of the scheme. Moneysavingexperts energy club is a good place to check and find out if you are on the best tariff

Tut tut.

​I'm a bit stupid on these things, could you tell me what countries you are on about?

This is disgusting. Say what you really feel which is that you're jealous other people are getting money off when you're not.

And the reason you're not is probably because you can afford not to need this benefit, which makes you better off than them, which is EXACTLY the way it's meant to work in the first place.

Shame on you.

Well dang, that would make me poor as heck.
Taking into account the £16k max household income, am I correct in thinking you need to be receiving SOME form of benefit to quality, checked EDF fuel provider and other than those being eligible who are on Pension Benefit the second criteria has a list of 7 options listed....' To qualify for Support Plus, you, or your partner living with you, must receive one of the seven benefit combinations' I am assuming you need to be on some form of benefit/support to qualify.

I think you will find that most people pay tax, which is 20% VAT on most purchases they buy, and even 5% VAT on gas and electricity, so another way to look at this is to say the needy are getting a rebate on the tax they have already paid, and not taking the tax that you have paid.
