EBSS Vouchers - Prepayment Meters
For those with prepayment meters, gov.uk advises you will receive your payments as either an automatic credit (for those with smart meters) or as a voucher for those with a traditional prepayment meter. The vouchers will be sent by SMS, email or in the post. It is important to ensure your supplier has your up to date contact information. The vouchers are time limited and expire after 90 days.
What to do if you have not received your voucher
If you have not received your voucher, or it has expired before it was redemeed, you will need to contact your energy supplier to request a replacement voucher.
Contact details for the main energy suppliers may be found through the links below:
If you need a replacement voucher, please contact your supplier directly. In most cases, the supplier will need to ask you questions or update your details to ensure you receive the replacement voucher as soon as possible.
