Energy allowance for low-income households

The Luxembourg government has introduced an energy allowance for the year 2022. This alowance is intended for people whose income does not exceed the limits of the cost-of-living benefit (allocation de vie chère - AVC) increased by 25 %. To find out if you are eligible for the allowance, you can consult the table here.

The amount of the energy allowance is between EUR 200 and EUR 400 depending on the composition of the household. It is paid together with the cost-of-living benefit (AVC).  

Applications can be submitted until 30 September 2022 using the same application form as for the AVC, made available :

As a reminder, the application for the cost-of-living benefit is deemed complete if:

  • it is fully completed: all questions have been answered;
  • it is signed by all adult applicants or by their legal representative;
  • a bank account identification document (RIB) of the applicant's personal account is attached.
Note: people who have already applied for the cost-of-living benefit do not need to make a second application. The FNS will review all applications for the year 2022 that have already been paid or refused for exceeding the maximum limits. Thus, in case of a favourable review, the payment date of the allowance is scheduled for 29 April 2022.
