The first energy checks have been sent since April 2, 2024. This aid set up by the State is used by the lowest-income households to pay gas or electricity bills. New departments will receive them this week of April 22, 2024.

The energy check made its return on April 2, 2024. This aid put in place by the State allows the most modest households to fight against the surge in energy prices. The conditions for receiving this subsidy depend on household income. 5.8 million households can benefit from it.

Up to 277 euros

Its amount is between 48 and 277 euros, for an average amount of 150 euros, and varies depending on the reference tax income of 2021, according to a very precise scale communicated by the Ministry of Economy and Finance.
