Bill bonus extended to another 600 thousand families. Isee, the income threshold rises to get the discount

Aid to families with i low incomes to pay the bills they will be strengthened. In the maneuver that will be approved at the beginning of next week, the government will expand the audience of beneficiaries of the social bonus. There are still several hypotheses on the table. The first, more immediate application, is the increase in the Isee threshold to obtain the direct discount on the bill of approximately 30 percent.

Today this reduction is up to those who have a Isee maximum of 12 thousand euros. It could be brought up to 15 thousand euros. In this way, the social bonus would reach another 600,000 families, which would be added to the 2.5 million households already covered by the electricity bonus today, and to the 1.5 million households currently receiving the bonus for gas. But the government would not rule out the possibility of introducing the family quotient already used in the aid-quater decree for the new superbonus of 90 percent for the social bonus on bills when the renovation involves a single-family house.

Superbonus 90%, transfer of credit in 10 years: this is how it works. Condo run for 110%


This would be a twin mechanism. The social bonus for electricity and gas, in this hypothesis, would be for those with a maximum income of 15,000 euros. However, if there are two components of the nucleus, a “coefficient” exactly equal to two would be applied. It means that the total income of the family for the purposes of the bonus would be considered only for half (and therefore the income to access the bonus would rise to 30,000 euros). In the case of a nucleus with a dependent child, the income would be divided by 2.5 and, therefore, the maximum income for accessing the aid would rise to 37,500 euros. From the third child onwards, the income would be divided by four, and therefore the maximum income for the bonus would rise to 60,000 euros. However, this mechanism has to deal with the financial compatibility and limited coverage available to the government’s energy package (21 billion in all).


It was the Economy Minister himself, Giancarlo Giorgetti, who explained that for the social bonus on energy he would have preferred a mechanism other than the Isee. But what are the bonus amounts? In the case of electricity bills, for a family of one or two members, the quarterly discount is 264 euros. For a family of between three and four members, the direct reduction in the electricity bill is currently worth 321 euros. While for larger families, from four members up, the discount affects for 378 euros. As far as gas is concerned, however, the social bonus depends not only on the size of the family, but also on the climatic zone of residence. For climatic zones A and B, where temperatures are milder, the bonus is worth 276 euros for each quarter. For zones F, where instead the temperatures are colder, the gas bonus can even reach 1,436 euros per quarter.

Bills, the shield arrives: three months at a protected rate for condominiums and shops

It should not be forgotten that in addition to strengthening social bonuses, the government maneuver will also extend for another three months the zeroing of system charges which alone account for more than 20 percent of the final electricity and gas bill. The combination of bonuses and zeroing of system charges has so far prevented the bills of the weakest segments of the population from being subject to increases. The measure will therefore be repeated and strengthened.
