The energy check is a device that helps the most precarious households to pay their energy costs. Its concession is conditional on the resources of the household, which must not exceed a limit, set according to the number of dependents. There is no procedure to follow: the energy check is sent by mail, automatically, usually in the spring. In a context of galloping inflation, the government announced the payment of an additional check of 100 euros in December. This was done between December 13 and 22. Please note: the use of the energy check is limited to the payment of energy bills. But how should you proceed once the check is in your hand? You can pay online, by entering the check number and contract references on the dedicated site.

To find out if you can benefit from the energy bonus, you must divide your reference tax income by the number of consumption units in your home. Very specifically, this means that the reference tax income must not exceed 10,800 euros for one person only. The site dedicated to the energy control system allows you to use a simulator, here. Simply fill in your tax identification number. Are you struggling to find this one? Put your hands on your last tax notice.

1 CU €194 146 euros €98 48 euros
1 < UC < 2 240 euros 176 euros 113 euros 63 euros
2 or more CUs €277 202 euros 126 euros 76 euros
