Tens of thousands of E.on's elderly customers face a hike in energy bills after the energy supplier announced it will be scrapping its low-cost tariff for those aged over 60.
The supplier's StayWarm scheme offers fixed price energy for 12 months with nothing extra to pay and no bills throughout the year.
However, the firm said it has been forced to withdraw this tariff due to new Ofgem rules that limit the number of tariffs that energy companies can offer.
The change will affect all customers whose contracts end after 7 October.
According to E.on, all affected customers will receive letters informing them of the changes and advising them on what they could do next.
If your contract ends after 7 October, then you will be automatically signed up to the supplier's more expensive tariff, unless you tell E.on otherwise.
If you're one of the customers affected then you could start searching for a cheaper energy deal.
