2020/21 Warm Home Discount starts in autumn.


The Warm Home Discount scheme (WHDS) grants a one-off payment of £140 (incl VAT) to help those who need it most in Britain.

The Warm Home Discount scheme was introduced in April 2011 and managed by energy companies. The grant is not given directly to you; it's credited to your current energy account or prepayment card during the winter.

If you receive the Pension Credit guarantee, you automatically acknowledged for the discount, and the DWP will have contacted those who are eligible for the winter 2020/2021 discount in autumn 2020.
