Britain is facing the biggest cost of living crisis in decades and for many, not being able to pay bills is the reality of the biggest squeeze on household spending in 60 years.

An anonymous campaign urging people not to pay their energy bills this winter is gathering pace – but is it safe to do so?

Plans by Don’t Pay UK have been called “highly irresponsible” by the government, and charities have warned against rushing to cancel your direct debit.

However, Britain is facing the biggest cost of living crisis in decades, and Citizens Advice said it supported more people who had been unable to top up their prepayment energy meter in June than it had in January 2022.

So for many, the inability to pay their energy bills is more than just strike action, but a reality of the biggest squeeze on household spending in 60 years.

What happens if you don’t – or can’t – pay your energy bills?

If you miss a payment, the supplier will first send you a reminder. If they still don’t hear from you, they may try and visit you at home to work out the best way to pay – but some, such as SSE, will add the cost of this visit to your account.
