The deadline for submitting applications for the allowance on the relevant AADE website (www.aade.gr/mythermansi) expires on 9 December 2022.
Beneficiaries will receive the support they are entitled to 3 doses. Old beneficiaries can receive as an advance the total amount of the heating allowance that was paid to them during the previous winter season. The advance payment will be offset against subsequent payments of the allowance.
