    When comparing prices should I forget about this allowance to get an accurate comparison.

    It's up to you, but don't forget that with suppliers other than ESB/Electric Ireland you must pay the full bill and get money refunded afterwards. If you get the "free electricity" as a cash payment then you will notice little different other than the hopefully lower charges.

    Never heard of having to 'claim it back' but it may have been the case.

    This seems to be the current position now. http://www.citizensinformation.ie/e...fare_benefits/household_benefits_package.html
