Hello All, This is just a friendly reminder to read the Forum Charter where you wish to post before posting in it. :)
Hi all, The AutoSave Draft feature is now disabled across the site. The decision to disable the feature was made via a poll last year. The delay in putting it in place was due to a bug/update issue. This should serve as a reminder to manually save your drafts if you wish to keep them. Thanks, The Boards Team.

    You should also check if you are now eligible for the fuel allowance as the income limits have been increased.

    Yes, they changed it. I'd say its to do with wanting people to allow others to stay with them and not be punished for it. I receive it. I live alone but I moved in with a sister during covid and wasn't entitled at first but had it restored when they changed it. If you want it paid to a provider you can only use Electric Ireland for electricity and Bord Gais for gas. If you have other providers you have to take cash.
