BT Home Essentials
BT Home Essentials is a low-cost telephone and broadband package for customers who are on certain benefits. It replaces BT Basics.

- Universal Credit (all claimants)
- Pension Credit (Guarantee Credit)

You will need your National Insurance number when you order, so BT can check you are eligible..
