Bill bonus 2024, discount for electricity: how to request it

Once the social bonus has expired, the additional contribution for electricity bills will remain in force only for the months of January, February and March 2024

2024 brings some innovations in the field of bills with particular reference to those concerning electricity, gas and water. The enhanced social bonus ends which allowed, during 2023, all those who had an ISEE of up to 15,000 euros (or 30,000 euros in the presence of at least four dependent children) to access the benefit.

From 1 January 2024 we will return to the ordinary social bonus which requires an ISEE value of up to 9,530 euros (which becomes 20,000 euros in the presence of at least four dependent children), reminds In all this, however, it must be kept in mind that There will remain an additional benefit regarding the electricity bill thanks to what has been defined as the 2024 electricity bonus.

For electricity bills, limited to the first quarter of 2024, the ISEE limits envisaged for the enhanced social bonus will remain in force, namely:

-up to 15,000 euros of ISEE;

– up to 30,000 euros of ISEE for families with at least four dependent children.

The electricity bonus is a different benefit compared to the social bonus this is an additional contribution valid only for the electricity bill which will remain in force only for the months of January, February and March 2024. The social bonus, however, is a benefit that has been in force for many years (and which was only strengthened for 2023, allowing access also to families with higher ISEE) and concerns all domestic supplies, i.e.:

-electric energy;



In both cases, for both the electricity bonus and the social one, there is no need to submit any application and to be able to benefit from it, simply renew the ISEE until 2024 by presenting the new DSU.

Who is entitled to the electricity bonus provided for by the 2024 Budget Law? This is a benefit that in 2024 is automatically recognized to those who already benefit from the social energy bonus and the amount due varies based on the number of members of the family unit. The benefit, envisaged by the Bill Decree for the months of October, November and December 2023, never saw light and for this very reason the 2024 budget extended it for the first quarter of 2024.
