Why am I not eligible for the Warm Home Discount?


I have just filled in the Warm Winter Discount application
To my surprise - I find that here at BULB I am NOT eligible !

Every other Gas and Elec supplier I have been with has approved my application
My age and low income satisfy all the other suppliers I have been with since the year 2000 !

What has changed here at Bulb?? why am I no longer eligible for the discount ??

Please advise what to do - I will be 65 in DECMEBER my income will be below £10k a year - I receive no benefits at all

Honestly you need to contact the Bulb team direct during their working hours, their details are via this link: https://help.bulb.co.uk/hc/en-us/articles/115001240291-How-can-I-get-in-touch-with-Bulb- they should be able to say why you didn’t meet the necessary criteria.
