*UPDATE* - the Warm Home Discount 2018 - 2019 is now closed. Information about this year’s applications here.

It’s that time of year again - the weather is starting to get colder and it’s almost time to apply for this winter’s Warm Home Discount.

The Warm Home Discount is a one-off payment of £140 (including VAT) to go towards your winter energy costs.

We’re not quite ready to open applications yet, but we’ve set up an email alert for when we do. You need to register for this notification and can do so here.

If you’re not sure if you can apply, you can check if you’re eligible here.

Please be aware that unless you receive the Guaranteed element of Pension Credit (Guaranteed Pension Credit), you will need to apply again every year, even if you received the Warm Home Discount last year.

If you receive the Guaranteed element of Pension Credit, you are classed as a ‘Core Group’ customer and are guaranteed the payment every year without application to the scheme. Please look out for a letter from the DWP around October that confirms your eligibility. If you do not receive this letter from DWP by November, please call 0800 917 1003 to confirm your eligibility with DWP. If you do not contact by 28/02/2019, you will not be able to claim Warm Home Discount.

I have asked this question before but haven't had any really clear answers , Is anybody aware when the applications are going to actually open please it's just it has normally started buy now I'm just concerned because the later it opens its going to take longer for them to process it would be nice to have for the winter instead of after ie Early Spring , also other companies have already started taking applications and in some cases have already started to prepare issuing payment in the next 6 weeks apparently many thanks Jen

I've moved your query here, @Jennie46, as we already had a topic on this.

We haven't confirmed a date for when the applications will open, rest assured this should be soon.

To receive an email when the application opens, you'll just need to pre-register your interest. All the information you need to do this is in this topic.

Hi I've moved over from pay as you go + to pay as you go traditional will I still have the same account number? Just want to check as I need the account number to pre register.
You should still have the same account number @Sdd - but I'd be happy to double check this. Just send me a PM with your full name, full address and DoB. ^Emily
It's OK I've had a letter that has my account number on it is the same. The warm home discount application is now open which is does not state on here and I've had no email which is very annoying
Glad to hear you've got your account number @Sdd

These emails are being sent to customers in batches across the week - providing they've preregistered their interest for the scheme. We'll be updating our Forum shortly, with more information on what customers can expect next.

Hope this helps,
Emily
