The government has launched the online alternative fuel payments portal for those heating oil customers who have not received their £200 payment directly through their electricity account.
The portal can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/apply-alternative-fuel-bill-support-if-not-automatic and will be open until the end of May.
For those without online access, the contact centre helpline can be reached on 0808 1753943 for applicants in Great Britain where a representative will guide you through the application process. The helpline is open 8am to 6pm on Monday to Friday.
Customers should have ready proof of address, bank account details, and proof of heating oil purchases with a value of £200 or more and with a date between September 2022 and the end of the application window (31 May 2023). After a number of checks customers should get payments through their local authority.
Should you need a copy of your most recent delivery from CPS then please complete the customer enquiry form that can be found on our contact page.
