Senator Johnson Announces $200 Senior LIPA Credit

The Long Island Power Authority has created a program that will help seniors save on their electric bills, Senator Craig M. Johnson, (D-Nassau), announced.

The $10 million initiative would fund a one-time $200 credit for eligible seniors.

“With the cold weather just around the corner, this program could not have come at a better time,” said Senator Johnson. “I applaud LIPA Chairman Kevin Law for spearheading this important effort that will help many seniors living on a fixed income.”

Eligible applicants must be age 62 or older, a LIPA account holder, and meet the following income requirements:

Single person households cannot have a monthly income that exceeds $1,963, or an annual income of $23,556; a household of two cannot have a monthly income that exceeds $2,567, or an annual income of $30,804; a household of three cannot have a monthly income that exceeds $3,172, or an annual income of $38,064; a household of four cannot have a monthly income that exceeds $3,776, or an annual income of $45,312; a household of five cannot have a monthly income that exceeds $4,380, or an annual income of $52,560,  a household of six cannot have a monthly income that exceeds $4,984, or an annual income of $59,808;  household of seven cannot have a monthly income that exceeds $5,097, or an annual income of $61,164; a household of eight cannot have a monthly income that exceeds $5,210 or an annual income of $62,520.

The credits will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.

Additional information on this program is available at Senator Johnson’s District Office, 151 Herricks Roads, Suite 202, Garden City Park. The Senator’s office can also be reached at 516-746-5923.
