The Household Benefits Package (HBP) helps with the cost of your electricity or gas bill and the TV licence. Only one person in a household can get the Package.
You can get the Household Benefits Package if you are aged 70 or over. You do not need to be getting a State pension and the package is not means tested.
People under 70 can also get the HBP, but additional rules apply.
The Household Benefits Package has multiple ways people can receive help with their household bills such as:
- Electricity allowance
- Gas allowance
- TV License Allowance
