What about my social welfare or disability allowance?

When you switch to SSE Airtricity you’ll still receive your full social welfare or disability allowance, but it won’t appear as a credit on your bill. Instead, the Department of Social Protection will pay it directly into your nominated bank, building society or post office account.

We recommend that you contact the Department of Social Protection to ensure your nominated payment details are up to date. Once we switch your account over to SSE Airtricity, we’ll let the Department of Social Protection know that we’re your new supplier.


You don’t need to wait for your bill to start paying it. Make extra top-up payments at any time using any payment method you like.
