Social Bonus for Gas, what changes from 2021

All the innovations introduced from 1st January 2021

From 1 January 2021 it is no longer necessary to submit the application to the Municipalities or CAF to obtain the Social Bonus for Gas

From 1 January 2021, in fact, those who are entitled to the bonus for gas economic hardship will no longer have to submit a specific application to the Municipalities or CAF: it will be sufficient to submit only the Single Substitute Declaration (DSU) each year, for example through the Municipality, the CAF or the INPS website, in order to obtain the ISEE certificate used to access the various subsidized social services (eg: maternity allowance, school canteen, baby bonus, etc.).

From January 1, 2021, Municipalities and CAF can no longer accept specific applications for obtaining the bonus for gas economic hardship and those that may be submitted will not be valid for recognition.


The necessary requirements to obtain the 2021 Gas Social Bonus

All domestic customers holding a natural gas supply contract belonging to:

  • a family unit with an ISEE indicator not exceeding 8,265 euros
  • a family unit with at least 4 dependent children (large family) and an ISEE indicator not exceeding 20,000 euros
  • a family unit holding a Citizenship Income or Citizenship Pension.

In the presence of the requirements listed above, INPS will send the data of the family unit to the Integrated Information System (Integrated Information System, managed by the Single Buyer company) and, through these, the operators will receive the information to automatically recognize the bonus in their bill.

Each family unit is entitled to only one bonus per type - power, gas, water - per year of competence.
