People urged to cash in unused energy bill support vouchers

2023-05-30 23:03:44  • 3 mins

Households with prepayment meters are being urged to make sure they have cashed in all their energy vouchers before the end of June.

The government says that while more than four in five vouchers have been used, 130m is still available.

The voucher scheme provides support of 400 per household.

Customers are being told to contact their electricity supplier over the next few weeks if they have any issues with their vouchers.

The Energy Bills Support Scheme was announced by the government last year, and provided 400 to each household in Britain to help with the cost of soaring gas and electricity bills.

The government, charities, consumer groups and energy suppliers are issuing a combined call for those eligible to claim the help they are entitled to, before the vouchers expire on 30 June.
