cost of living crisis €100 Fuel Allowance bonus to be paid to eligible households in coming days
It is the second fuel allowance bonus made available to those on social welfare payments in recent months
A €100 Fuel Allowance bonus is set to be paid to eligible households in the coming days.
In March the Government paid a bonus of €125, and committed to paying an additional three weeks of Fuel Allowance to around 400,000 eligible households in May.
It comes as part of cabinet's plans to help off-set the cost of living crisis.
The three extra social welfare weekly payments of €33 will be paid mid-May.
The payment, which is part of the National Fuel Scheme, gives those eligible weekly payments of €33 from September to April for approximately 28 weeks.
Applications for the 2022/2023 bonus remain open to those who meet the criteria.
To qualify for fuel allowance you must be on a long-term social welfare payment and are unable to provide for your heating needs from your own resources.
