$75 energy supplement

If you're entitled, have you received your $75 for singles, $123 for couples, energy supplement payment from the government?

My June electricity bill was $392. I'm single & I have rheumatoid arthritis I need to have the heating on.

I'm always perplexed as to why a couple receive more money? If anything it's harder to pay your bills when your by yourself.

Has the payment helped you to pay your bill?

Firstly... I'm not ungrateful for the payment
Second... I'm in this situation, as a result of a work place bullying situation.
I've worked all my life until recently. It's not easy.
How do you manage?

Thankyou for reading, interested in your thoughts.

Sorry to hear about your health problems. I'm glad it helped you & it helped me also, it's just very difficult as having Ankylosing spondylitis myself, which is an inflammatory arthritis affecting the spine and large joints, I need the heater on basically 24/7 in this cold weather, otherwise I struggle to move. Thankyou for your reply. I wish you all the best. Take care :)
