Thermal Social Voucher: what it consists of and who can get it

Just as there has been a Social Voucher for electricity for years, a new law has established a similar aid for heating. The requirements to receive it are the same: low income levels or a large family.

The Law for Energy Transition incluye una serie de novedades que han generado grandes expectativas. These include the Thermal Social Voucher, an aid designed and regulated by the government to cover the spending on heating, hot water and cooking of families considered vulnerable.

We review every detail of this measure.

 

Who is entitled to the Thermal Social Voucher?

The requirements are exactly the same as those of the Electric Social Voucher. Basically, you have to fit into one of these 3 categories:

1. Low income level: below limits that are being updated and currently stand at about 12,000 euros per year for the entire cohabitation unit.

A cohabitation unit is considered to be that constituted by all the people who reside in the same household and who are related to each other as follows:

  • By marriage or as a domestic partnership.
  • Related up to the second degree of consanguinity/affinity: Children, spouse, parents, parents-in-law, sons-in-law and daughters-in-law, grandparents, siblings, grandchildren and brothers/sisters-in-law.
  • By adoption, and other persons with whom you live by virtue of guardianship for the purpose of adoption or permanent family fostering.
  • In no case may the same person be part of two or more cohabitation units.

2. Pensioner: you must be receiving the minimum pension.

3. Large Family: from three children.

These requirements have a number of nuances, so we recommend you consult them in detail at the following link:

How do I request the Social Thermal Voucher?

The procedure for applying for this help is exactly the same as for the electric Social Voucher.

In order to have the Thermal Social Voucher, you first have to be a beneficiary of the Electric Social Voucher. If they give you the Electric Social Voucher, you will also get the thermal one.

At the following link we explain how to start your application:

What does this aid consist of?

While the electricity Social Bonus is a discount that is applied every month on the electricity bill, the thermal social bonus consists of a single annual payment.

Although this will not necessarily be the only method of payment, this money will usually be deposited in the current account used by the beneficiary to make the direct debits corresponding to payment for electricity bills. The aim is for it to be used to cover heating, hot water and cooking expenses. It does not matter which system is used (gas, electric, diesel, etc.).

The amount to be paid will be decided by the Government each year and will rise or fall depending on the family's degree of vulnerability and the climate area in which the dwelling is located.

This year there has been an increase in the budget for the thermal Social Bonus which now stands at an average value of €90 per beneficiary. The minimum reference value has been increased from €25 to €35 and the final amount will depend on the climate area of residence.

Aid for severely vulnerable consumers or consumers at risk of social exclusion will also be 60 % higher than that allocated in the same climate area to vulnerable consumers.

The management of the payment will be the responsibility of the autonomous communities. The electricity companies are not responsible either for managing or paying the amount corresponding to this aid. If you have problems receiving it, you should call 060.

“The Thermal Social Voucher is a unique annual variable amount payment that will be made during the first quarter of the year.”
