The following is a summary of our Payment Assistance Policy. You can access the full policy here

Residential and small business customers who are experiencing difficulty paying their bills, may be entitled to special arrangements for our invoices they cannot immediately afford to pay

Assessment of Application

We try to be as flexible as possible when assessing your application for payment assistance, as we understand every case and scenario is different.

Generally, an assessment of an application will involve the following steps:

Step 1: Submit your application for Payment Assistance through the form below.
Step 2: We’ll review your application and may ask for evidence to support your reasons for Payment Assistance.
Step 3: Your application will be assessed for approval.
Step 4: If accepted, we’ll work with you to agree upon a suitable arrangement.
Step 5: We’ll notify you of the agreed arrangement and request your confirmation.
Once an arrangement has been confirmed, we will not take any credit management action while you are complying.

If we determine that you don’t meet the criteria for an arrangement or assistance, we will inform you promptly.
