Extended Due Date
The Extended Due Date Plan is available to qualifying residential customers and is intended to enable the Cooperative to change a customer's bill due date, at the customer's request, to coincide with the customer's receipt of his or her income. Customers who qualify under this plan will not be considered delinquent, nor will their account be adversely affected by the Cooperative as long as they are an active participant and do not violate any conditions described for removal of the plan.
You may qualify for the Extended Due Date Plan if your primary source of income is from the following sources:
- Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC)
- Aid to the Aged, Blind, and Disabled
- Supplemental Security Income
- Social Security
- Veterans Administration Disability
You may become a plan participant by written or verbal notification to the Cooperative. The Cooperative will require verification of your income source and you will be required to furnish to the Cooperative a copy of your check receipt. Participation will continue each month thereafter, as long as the account remains active and in good standing. Any information provided to the Cooperative may be made part of the customer's account record. Extended Due Date only applies to customers whose check receipt date occurs after the normal bill due date.
You may be removed from the Extended Due Date Plan if you fail to pay your bill by the extended due date two times in a row or three times in the last 12 months. You may also be removed from theExtended Due Date Plan if you are disconnected for nonpayment of your account. Customers who are removed from the Extended Due Date Plan may reapply for the Plan following a 12-month waiting period.
