    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.
