Hello, I went on gov.Uk to find out about applying again for coming year, it is saying unless we live in Scotland the DWP will automatically put you forward if you are entitled, is this right? Previously I had to send documents? Interested to hear if anyone knows any different? Thanks

    The warm home discount criteria for England and Wales has changed this year. If you’re entitled to it then you will be contacted. Part of the criteria is you must be claiming a qualifying means tested benefit. Full details here https://www.gov.uk/the-warm-home-discount-scheme/low-income
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
