Students receiving a fortnightly education allowance under VCES or MRCAETS for secondary or tertiary education may also be eligible for energy payments.  

The Energy Supplement (ES) is part of the Household Assistance Package, which provides financial assistance to members of the veteran and defence community to help meet the cost of living impact of the carbon price. The ES (previously the Clean Energy Supplement) commenced for recipients of fortnightly VCES and MRCAETS payments on 1 January 2014.
