Here you will find everything you need to know about the payment and how to get it.
First of all, am I eligible for this payment?
Each Victorian household will receive a one-time payment of $250 to reduce the burden of energy prices.
Why is the Victorian government doing this?
The announcement was part of a release initiative by Dan Andrews ahead of his election budget. The energy program runs for one year, from July 1 to June 30, 2023.
Victoria Premier Dan Andrews claims that seven out of ten Victorians can save an extra $330 on their energy bills each year by finding a more competitive energy deal.
Combined with the $250, he said Victorians will be better off nearly $600 annually.
When will the payment come?
From July 1, payments will be made to the bank account used when you registered online.
