The exceptional energy checks of 100 euros, intended for 5.8 million low-income households in France, will be sent from this Monday, December 13, announced the government.

They “will be received by beneficiary households within a few days and at the latest before the end of the month”, says the Ministry of Ecological Transition in a press release.

The last checks should be mailed on December 22 and normally be received two to four days later. This exceptional check intended for those who already benefit from the energy check was announced in mid-September by the Prime Minister, Jean Castex, in order to help the French to cope with the surge in energy prices.

Beneficiaries can use it to pay their bills (electricity, gas, fuel oil, wood, etc.) or heating costs in certain homes. It can also be used to pay expenses related to the energy renovation of the home.

“No action is necessary for the beneficiaries to receive this check”, recalls the ministry.

The energy check is an already existing device, amounting to 150 euros on average, benefiting certain households according to their tax income.
