Ameren offering assistance to customers with overdue bills

Posted: Updated:

ILLINOIS - Ameren Illinois officials say they are offering assistance to residential customers who have fallen behind on their utility bill.

Officials say eligible customers with past due balances will be able to establish a repayment plan by making a 10 percent down payment before April 1.  After April 1, customers will need to pay 25 percent of the balance before a monthly payment plan can be established.

Additionally, some customers may be able to receive assistance through the Energy Assistance Foundation program "Warm Neighbors Cool Friends."  Ameren also offers rebates and incentives on measures that can make your home more energy efficient.

For more information, or to establish a payment plan, call (800) 755-5000 or visit Ameren's website.
