The deadline to apply for ComEd's recently-announced initiative to help people who are having a hard time paying their electric bills is Friday, March 27. Under the program, customers can pay 90 percent of the amount owed and ComEd will credit the remaining 10 percent OR, customers can pay 25 percent and agree to a payment plan. The remaining balance will not incur additional interest charges or fees.
The program is a one-time offer designed to provide some immediate relief to customers facing disconnection and is open to any ComEd customer who has received a disconnection notice regardless of household income. For more information or to apply for the program, call 1-888-806-CARE (2273) to speak to a ComEd customer service representative.
