The gas price will know an increase of 15% in January 2023. The same will apply to electricity, which will increase in February. Faced with such a situation, the government wants to help the poorest families. Reason for which, the state will grant exceptional energy control by the end of 2022. The goal is to try to counter this inflationary phenomenon which has been going on for several months now.
The amount of the outstanding energy control
For one person, the maximum amount of energy control it can go up to 194 euros in 2022. It should be noted that this check can be combined with Ma Prime Rénov.
The amount of this exceptional energy check is from 100 to 200 euros. To receive it, the beneficiary must meet certain income conditions. Take the example of a single mother. If she is paid the minimum wage and has two dependent children, she will pocket 200 euros.

However, a couple with two children dependent and whose cumulative income reaches 3,000 euros net will receive 100 euros. The government carried out precise arbitration to determine the amount of the check.
Here’s what it looks like:
- Control of 200 euros : and for 20% of families the poorest with lower incomes € 13,310.
- Control of 100 euros : is for families whose income is between € 13,310 And € 18,610.
A figure of 1.8 billion euros
According to Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne, 12 million people in France they will receive these energy vouchers. This represents 40% of the most modest families. The Minister of Economy, Bruno Le Maire, also made a calculation.
According to this calculation, the figure for this maneuver is up to 1.8 billion euros for the state. We remind you that once a year the beneficiaries receive the traditional energy check at home. However, these beneficiaries may decide to pre-assign the allowance to their energy supplier.
The collection of this check does not require any intervention. Furthermore, this energy control can also be used for people residing in an approved residential housing, an EHPAD. Either in an establishment or a long-term care unit.

Beneficiaries of the exceptional energy control
Each year, the energy audit is awarded based on income and composition of the family unit. It is automatically addressed to the beneficiaries based on information from the tax services. And this, subject to the tax return made within the terms set by the tax authorities.
The beneficiary must also live accommodation subject to tourist tax. And this, even if it is no longer an object. On Wednesday 14 September Elisabeth Borne made an announcement during a press conference on the energy crisis.
The Prime Minister has in fact announced the payment of an exceptional energy allowance a 12 million beneficiaries before the end of the year. However, he has not yet formally specified the conditions.
Having said that, in principle, the beneficiaries should be the same as for the usual energy vouchers. Those paid in the spring of 2022. According to the government, out of 10 families, 4 should be eligible. Income criteria have been put in place to specify the conditions for obtaining it.
The payment date of the energy check
It is by department that the payment of the energy check is made. According to the residence department, the beneficiaries received the 2022 check between March 30 and April 29, 2022. And this, automatically. Announced in September 2022, the payment of the exceptional energy allowance it will take place by the end of the year.

So you have to complete a questionnaire with three questions. You can also continue the test if you are a licensed operator for accommodation in rental brokerage.
Haven’t you received it yet?
To benefit from the energy voucher it is necessary fulfill all the required conditions. Do you fill them, though, not the slightest trace in your mail? So you wonder what to do. It is not that difficult.
You just need to contact support through the contact form on the dedicated website. Otherwise, do it over the phone. Just bring the tax notice.
“In order to benefit from the energy voucher, you must have declared your income to the taxman”, we recall in the FAQ.
And this, even if your income they are low or nil. You can request an energy check only after having regularized your situation. That said, you need to declare your income for the following year. Otherwise, you will not be able to take advantage of the energy control.
The RFR taken into account
The government reserves the energy allowance for the most modest families. Provided that their resources do not exceed a certain ceiling. A variable ceiling according to the composition of the family unit. That said, let’s take into account the reference tax income. This RFR must be less than € 10,800 per unit of consumption (CU).
Note that a person represents a CU. The second person is counted at 0.5 CU and each additional person at 0.3 CU. That being the case, you must then divide your RFR by the number of CUs in your household. You will know if you can benefit from energy control. Clearly, for one person, the RFR it must not exceed 10,800 euros.
