What is the warm home discount scheme?
The Warm Home Discount scheme is not like the other grants in that you do not get paid directly, but instead receive a one-off discount of £150 when you pay your electricity bill over the winter.
You’ll usually get the discount automatically if you’re eligible. You only need to apply if you’re on a low income in Scotland – contact your energy supplier to apply.
If you might be eligible, you’ll get a letter by early January 2024.
If you do not get a letter and you think you’re eligible, you must contact the Warm Home Discount Scheme before 29 February 2024.
You may be able to get the discount on your gas bill instead if your supplier provides you with both gas and electricity and you’re eligible. Contact your supplier to find out.
You can be eligible for the discount if you receive the Guarantee element of the Pension Credit or if you are in a low-income household. The discount won’t affect any of your other benefits.
