Evidence required for EBSS AF:
Utility bill – Must be dated no earlier than 3 months before application date
Benefits entitlement letter must be from within the last 6 months.
Evidence required for AFP AF:
Government has extended the period of time that AFP AF applicants can evidence purchase of alternative fuel by three months to June 2022, instead of September 2022. This means the period for which receipts can be accepted now runs from June 2022 to the end of the application window on 31 May 2023.
This change recognises that some households have stocked up on fuel ahead of winter price rises, and it is right that these households will be able to receive the £200 energy bill support they are entitled to.
Please note that to combat fraud and phishing attempts, Government will never provide any links to the application portal or directly ask individuals to apply for their support.
Remember, the Government will never contact you directly to ask for Bank Details.
Beware of scams.
