What type of aid is offered?
While the Electric Social Voucher is a discount that is applied every month on the electric bill, its thermal aspect consists of a single annual payment.
Although it will not necessarily be the only way, this money will usually be entered into the current account in which the beneficiary has the electric bill address payment. It is supposed to be used to cover heating, hot water and kitchen expenses. It does not matter which system is used (gas, electric, diesel...).
The payment will be made during the first quarter of the year and in order to receive it, you will have to be included as a beneficiary of the Electric Social Voucher dated December 31st of the previous year.
The amount to be entered is decided by the Government each year and will increase or decrease depending on the degree of vulnerability of the family and the climatic zone where the residence is located.
Payment handling will be made by the Autonomous communities, although this winter (2018/2019) it will be uniquely commissioned by the Ministry. Electricity suppliers have nothing to do with the management of this support measure.
Electricity suppliers neither manage nor pay the cost of this aid. If you have any problems in receiving it, you need to call the phone 060.
