Additionally, claimants may also be eligible for WaterSure, which is a scheme designed to cap their bills if they have a water meter.
The WaterSure scheme is designed to provide eligible recipients with peace of mind, making sure they don’t cut back on how much water they use because they’re worried about how they will afford their bills.
To qualify, claimants, or someone living with them, will need to be entitled to receive Universal Credit, housing benefit, income support, income-based jobseeker’s allowance, working tax credit, child tax credit, pension credit or income-related employment and support allowance.
In addition to this, claimants will need to either be responsible and receive child benefit for three or more children under the age of living in the property or, have (or someone living in the property must have) a medical condition which requires significant additional use of water.
