The adventures of the “heat check”


On the 10th of August, 400.000 people in Denmark received 6.000 DKK automatically. The people that received the money fulfilled the two conditions – (a) household total income in 2020 under 650.000 DKK (b) registered in BBR (before 1 January 2022) with one of these three heat sources – natural gas; district heating with a high proportion of gas; electricity with a consumption of over 1500 KW. 

  • Unfortunately, people don’t always update the BBR with the changes made to their house, so some people didn’t receive the money (despite being qualified for it) while others received it without being qualified. 
  • If you got the 6.000 DKK by mistake you don’t have to return it to the state. However, if you feel like others need the money more than you, you will be able to return them voluntarily at some point in the next few months. 
  • If you didn’t get the 6.000 DKK, despite being eligible for it, you can apply at the beginning of 2023 for them.
