Ok just to clarify a wee bit as some suppliers are still waiting to confirm their scheme and some users have mentioned their provider has nothing yet.

 

Here is the House of Commons library Briefing Paper - The Warm Home Discount Scheme published 5th May 2016

link: http://researchbriefings.parliament....ummary/SN05956 (You can download the PDF near the bottom of the page)

 

Now the Supplier Guidance for the Scheme is dealt with by Ofgem and at present the Guidance for Supplier is only in Draft Format as Ofgems consultation with Suppliers only closed on 10th August 2016.

 

See this Ofgem link: https://www.ofgem.gov.uk/publication...ft-version-5-0

 

This is why some Energy Suppliers are waiting to confirm the scheme as the Guidance from Ofgem has not been finalised yet.

 

It still doesn't stop you contacting your Energy Supplier and asking about the scheme, they may send the forms, put you on a list when scheme confirmed to send forms automatically to you, so keep checking.

I've been getting this for the last 2 winters with EDF and it's made a huge difference to my bills... No longer do I need to worry about putting the heating on when it's cold in the winter. In addition to that, the last 2 winters have been milder around here than usual and it's resulted in me getting 2 refunds in the last 9 months of £132 and £92 and my monthly DD has dropped from £75 to £59.

 

Definitely worth applying for to see if you qualify, I shall be applying again this year as my circumstances haven't changed.

That is correct about SSE but it still does not stop you contacting them to be added to the list when finalised to get the applications forms automatically sent to you (it's what I have done with Scottish Hydro which is SSE)

Just bumping this thread I know it is July but to remind everyone to keep a close on on this.

 

Start checking with their Energy Supplier (website) when they are starting to take applications and the application form is available.

 

Remember to keep an eye on it as the funds for this are as always limited so get your application form in as soon as possible.

 

Remember to check even if you think your not entitled to it as most Energy Suppliers have a Broader Group which you may fall into so check you never know.

I am a pensioner with a very low income and was getting the Warm Home Discount (EOn) before I moved into rented housing with a British Gas pre-payment meter.

When I applied for the discount, they said the account at this address is not registered in my name. I tried offering the landlord's name, but they can't tell me whose name is on the account because of data privacy. The house is owned by more than one person and I don't know all their names.

No idea what to do next...:|

We received a letter about this & the results were:

 

1st Phone Call - have you filled the form in answer - what form then they hung up

 

2nd Phone call - your power company don't take part then they hung up

 

3 rd Phone call - yes that's all OK you will receive it by the end of March

 

Each phone call resulted in the same info being passed over so no variations there. Only the last operator seemed to be interested.

Yep... sounds about right!

 

Not only that, but there's another payment that I used to get (Winter Fuel ?) which pensioners are automatically entitled to, and that hasn't arrived either... wondering if, perhaps , I've died and nobody has bothered to inform me...:mad2:

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.
