For example, there was the back-to-school bonus, the annual energy check and the extraordinary energy check. These were distributed to almost 40% of households. This enabled these households to pay certain charges such as wood, gas and electricity bills. And that despite constantly rising prices.
Recently another financial help was also founded. This is the heating oil energy check. The aid was created to support just over a million households and will pay various bills.
What is its amount? When is it paid? How do we know if we are eligible? We answer you in the next paragraphs.
What is the fuel energy check used for?
As you may have noticed when looking through your invoices, energy prices are skyrocketing. Unfortunately, the situation will not improve in the foreseeable future. In order to help households, the government has therefore set up the heating oil check.
As the name suggests, this energy check aims to provide financial support for households that heat with heating oil. The latter can thanks to the promotion, pay their fuel bill, but not only. In fact, they can also pay with this energy check “any kind of energy bill”. And that until March 2024.
In a press release, Bercy explains the heating oil energy check in detail. In doing so, he announced that the aid will benefit almost 1.6 million French people. They can then pay their energy bill even if they have just filled up their tank. Under no circumstances will they lose the benefit of the aid.

The level of the fuel energy check
In order for the heating oil energy check to see the light of day, the government has to do it provide more than 200 million euros. What will be the amount of this aid?
As revealed by Bercy, the amount paid to households in the form of an energy check will be included between 100 and 200 euros. It is awarded based on 2020 income and the number of people in the household.
For clarification here some distribution examples :
- 200 euros : a single person earning minimum wage and having at least one child.
- 100 euros : a single individual who receives the SMIC but has no children.
- 100 euros : touch a single person Almost 3000 euros net per month and have 2 children.
The state plans to create an online simulator that will allow everyone would like to check their eligibility. The simulator will be accessible to everyone. You can access it by going to this address as soon as it becomes available.
Important information for households that have already taken advantage of an energy check pay a fuel bill. As Bercy said, they no longer have to follow a procedure. You will automatically receive the tank energy check by the end of November.
