What are Third party deductions / Fuel direct?

The government's Third Party Deductions scheme is an alternative to an instalment plan for customers who are on certain benefits.

How it works

Each week, a set amount of money is taken off your benefits to pay for:

  • your ongoing energy costs (this amount will be agreed with you)
  • your energy debt (£3.70 will be taken to reduce your debt each week)
