Consent

I understand British Gas might need to check that I am eligible for the Warm Home Discount Scheme by asking the Department for Work and Pensions to confirm whether I am in receipt of a qualifying benefit.

If the Department for Work and Pensions cannot confirm that I receive the qualifying benefits to be eligible to receive the discount I may need to send British Gas copies of my benefit letters. British Gas use a third party, Charis Grants, to support them in carrying out these eligibility checks

If I change electricity supplier before my discount is paid I will no longer be eligible.

Payments will be made between January and March 2020

You must consent to the above to be eligible
