AADE's special platform for the heating allowance will open in the coming days, no later than 9 with 10 December. This year there will be many differences about the past, as the heating allowance will not be received only by those who use heating oil.
Those who use will be added to the list of beneficiaries:
firewood or pellet (for mountainous areas, population limit 2.500)
Specifically for gas, the calculation will be based on the bills from October to next April. For heating oil, LPG and firewood, the heating allowance will be determined in the "traditional" way, The invoices.
This year another change was implemented,as regards the heating allowance, as the known area zones will not apply. Instead, in collaboration with EMY a new map was created, with the areas being separated in detail according to the weather conditions prevailing over time.
The new map took into account how many days the temperature drops below them 15,5 Celsius degrees.
