Application details www.gov.uk/the-warm-home-discount-scheme

Is this automatic? Only if Pension Credit Guarantee & if your supplier participates.

Switching & £140 electricity rebate?  After the qualifying date of 8th July 2018 if you switch your old and new suppliers will ignore you unless on Pension Credit GUARANTEE. 

When paid? Paid out by March 2019.

“Social pay my gas/electric, so the £140 electricity rebate does not apply to me”. This is a myth.  Fuel Direct customers must apply no one else will.

 

 

 

 

 

Robin Hood Energy are part of the scheme for Core Group (Pension Credit Guarantee). This is only mandatory for energy suppliers who reach 250,000 customers. If you meet the criteria for the WHDiscount rebate under the Core Group, you will receive a letter from the Department of Work and Pensions by 7 December 2018. If you think you are eligible for the Warm Home Discount but have not received your letter by this date you can contact the WHDiscount Scheme helpline on 0800 731 0214, Monday to Friday, 8:30am to 4:30pm..
