This is a complete list of Qualifying Benefits for a Government Heating Grant.
Here are a few important points to note.
- The benefit must be registered at the address that is having the First Time Central Heating installed.
- The benefit can be received by anyone that is registered as living at that address e.g. Income Based Job Seekers Allowance that is received by one of your children.
- If you own the property, you must be listed as an owner at the Land Registry.
