Are you struggling to pay your ScottishPower debt?
You could qualify for help from the ScottishPower Hardship Fund if you meet the terms and conditons and you’re receiving
Job Seekers Allowance,
Pension Credit, or
Employment and Support Allowance
You could also qualify if you have a low household income, or if there are special circumstances which could make you eligible for example you have experienced an income reduction due to illness.
Please note the terms and conditions are subject to change and you will be assessed to identify if eligible for the Hardship Fund when your application is reviewed.
How the ScottishPower Hardship Fund can help
Because some customers have difficulties paying their bills due to low income or other circumstances, ScottishPower has a Hardship Fund to help them get their energy payments under control. The Fund can help by clearing or reducing arrears by crediting a customer’s ScottishPower energy account.
Steps To Find Out If You Are Eligible
Contact a recognised debt advice agency such as StepChange Debt Charity*. They’ll give you free, independent advice on money and debt, and advise you how to budget for your energy payments. They can provide further details of the ScottishPower Hardship Fund and advise if you should apply to Sigma Connected Support who administer it on ScottishPower’s behalf.
Apply to Sigma Connected Support that administers the ScottishPower Hardship Fund. They will look at your circumstances and decide whether you are eligible to receive an award from the Fund towards your arrears. They will need evidence of financial hardship – for example, recent letters from the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP).
