Household Benefits Package For Over 70s

The Household Benefits Package (HBP) helps towards the costs of your electricity or gas bills. It also includes your television licence. Only one HBP is payable per household. The package is available to everyone over 70. It is not means tested and you do not need to be getting a state pension. Besides being over 70 you must also:

  • live in Ireland (full-time, all year round)

  • get the electricity or gas bill in your name

  • be the only person in the house getting the Household Benefits Package

The rate of payment for your electricity or gas bill is €1.15 per day, paid monthly. When you qualify for the Household Benefits Package you qualify for a free Television Licence from its next renewal date. You apply for this as part of your Household Benefits Package application.
