    Priority Services Register


    What is it?

    If you’re a vulnerable customer and feel like you need some extra help with managing your energy account, we can add you to our Priority Services Register (PSR).

    You can add yourself to the register or update your circumstances any time through your
    online account or by emailing us at hi@eonnext.com.

    When you’re on the PSR, there are extra things we can do for you to make life easier:

    1. If your energy supply stops unexpectedly, we’ll prioritise reconnecting you straight away.
    2. If you’re struggling to read your bill or statement, let us know and we can help.
    3. You can choose someone to look after your account for you. If they’re happy to do this, we’ll send them your bills or statements.
    4. If you’re worried about security, you can choose a password our team will use to identify themselves.
    5. If you have any concerns around reading the meter, we can request a ‘walk order’ either every 3 or 6 months for a meter reader to visit the property.
    6. If you have a meter that is unsuitable due to vulnerabilities we can discuss further options, for example a customer with a prepayment meter can have the meter moved to a more accessible location to ensure they are able to top up easily.
    7. We can arrange annual gas checks.

    How will I know if I'm eligible?

    You are eligible if you:

    • have reached your state pension age
    • are disabled or have a long-term medical condition
    • are recovering from an injury
    • have a hearing or sight condition
    • have a mental health condition
    • are pregnant or have young children
    • have extra communication needs (such as if you don’t speak or read English well)
    • need to use medical equipment that requires a power supply
    • have poor or no sense of smell
    • would struggle to answer the door or get help in an emergency

    If none of these apply to you - get in touch with us and ask about the PSR - we may have reasons not listed which we can apply
