Universal Credit We have seen great increases in unemployment due to Covid-19 and as we are in an unpredictable time the government has increased the universal credit allowance by £1000 to help people pay for their utility bills and food shopping.
Utility Companies The Utility companies can provide support during this time if you're struggling to make bill payments, in some cases they may give you access to hardship funds or increase the amount of time available for you to pay. For those of you who use a top up meter, if you can’t top up your meter, this includes if you are ill with coronavirus or because you are self isolating and if you don’t have anyone to help you. The government has launched an emergency package with energy suppliers to ensure you don’t face any additional difficulties in keeping your utilities active during the coronavirus outbreak. Customers with prepayment meters who are self-isolating or unable to leave their home can now speak to their supplier regarding what options are available. This may include, someone being sent to top up your prepayment card or token, having funds added to your meter credit, having a preloaded gas or electricity card sent to you in the post or no credit meters, where you pay for your energy after you have used it, this will be disconnected after the lockdown period.
