Under the Home Heating Cost Reduction Obligation (HHCRO), suppliers can deliver measures to consumers in receipt of Child Benefit where the occupier of the premises is under the specified income threshold for their household composition.
The Child Benefit self-declaration must be used to evidence Help to Heat Group (HTHG) eligibility for Child Benefit recipients and contains a declaration that the household income does not exceed the relevant income threshold for the corresponding number of children. The declaration should be signed by the occupier. The relevant third party should also sign their section of the declaration to provide assurance that the person living at the premises is in receipt of Child Benefit and is not in receipt of any of the other HTHG qualifying benefits.
This document applies to measures installed from 1 October 2018.
Amendments – 13 December 2018
The ECO3 Child Benefit self-declaration was republished on 13 December 2018 to include a section for the Child Benefit number and details of where a consumer can find this. Suppliers and installers should use version 3.1 of the ECO3 Child Benefit self-declaration.
