Check now to see if you qualify for a £140 discount on your energy bills.

PENSIONERS may be eligible for a £140 bill reduction, which could be critical in the midst of a cost-of-living crisis, according to experts.

Due to the lack of a salary in later life, many retirees find it difficult to make ends meet.

As a result, a large number of people will be looking for additional help.

People will spend more time indoors as the weather continues to deteriorate, potentially increasing their energy bills.

The government has established the Warm Home Discount Scheme to assist with these skyrocketing costs.

It saves eligible people £140 on their electricity bill during the winter months.

Between October and March, the money is distributed as a one-time discount rather than being paid directly to individuals.

If their supplier provides both gas and electricity, some people may be able to get a discount on their gas bill instead.

They must, however, confirm the details with their supplier.

This winter, there will be two main groups of people who will be eligible for a Warm Home Discount.

Individuals on a low income make up the so-called “broader group.”

However, there is another “core” group of retirees who are eligible for assistance.

These are people over the age of 65 who receive Pension Credit, which is a government program that helps low-income seniors cover living expenses.

Pensioners will be eligible for the discount if all of the following conditions are met on July 4, 2021:

This is true even for those who receive a Savings Credit as part of their benefit.

If they qualify, pensioners should have received a letter explaining how to get the discount.

If they need to call a helpline by February 28, 2022, this correspondence should inform them.

This will apply to some people who need to double-check their information before the discount can be applied.

The discount will be applied to eligible customers’ bills by March 31, 2022.

If a person believes they are eligible but have not yet received a letter, they should act quickly.
