Are you struggling to pay your energy bills? If you’re struggling to aﬀord your gas and electricity, don’t ignore these bills! What can you do? The ﬁrst step is to contact your supplier to discuss ways to pay what you owe them. Your supplier has to help you come to a soluon that works for both of you. If you don’t try to negoate with your supplier, they might eventually threaten to disconnect your supply. Energy arrears are a 'priority debt'. Priority debts are those which have a risk of serious consequences - this means you need to pay them before debts like credit cards. If you have more than one debt, work out which debts to pay ﬁrst in priority order.
Agree a payment plan Tell your supplier that you want to pay oﬀ your debts in instalments as part of a payment plan. You’ll pay ﬁxed amounts over a set period of me, meaning you’ll pay what you can aﬀord. The plan will cover what you owe plus an amount for your current use. Your supplier must take into account how much you can aﬀord to pay - give them details about your income and outgoings and how much energy you use. If you’re not sure how much you can aﬀord, look for “budgeng tool” on our naonal website ci%zensadvice.org.uk which takes into account other debts you have. If you can’t aﬀord the payment plan, speak to your supplier again to negoate a beVer deal. If you don’t, your supplier might make you have a prepayment meter installed.
Beneﬁts and grants Every year millions of people fail to claim billions of pounds of welfare beneﬁts they are entled to. If you’re disabled, elderly or have a low income, you can check what beneﬁts you’re entled to using the calculators at turn2us.org.uk, en%tledto.co.uk or beDeroﬀcalculator.co.uk. If you are receiving beneﬁts, you might be able to repay your debt directly from your beneﬁts through the Fuel Direct Scheme. Contact the Jobcentre to check. They’ll contact your supplier and tell them you want to pay oﬀ your debt this way - your supplier must agree to it. You can apply for a hardship grant from your fuel supplier if it’s npower, eon, Ovo, Sco!sh Power, EDF or SSE. The Brish Gas Energy Trust scheme is open to anyone - you don't have to be a customer. You can also check if you could reduce your future bills and
make your home warmer at the website simpleenergyadvice.org.uk
