Qouting ofgem again....it doesn't matter what they say because your clearly badly worded email states it WILL be applied within 6weeks....not that you aim to!! So you made this rod for your own backs!!

I think a lot of people on here are getting confused between applying and being accepted onto the whd scheme. i applied on the 17th oct and received an email 2 days later telling me my application had been received, not accepted on to the scheme, just received. Then on 9th Nov i got a letter through the door stating i was accepted onto the whd scheme and that my payment would be applied to my account within 6 weeks from the date of the letter, which works out to be around 14th dec. If your application was received it doesn't neccesarily mean you have been accepted onto the scheme. So it's not 6 weeks from when you apply, it's six weeks from when you were accepted on to the whd scheme, big difference.

I applied on 16th then the 18th i had a email telling me i was getting it
