Senator Kemp Hannon announced that his office has free brochures available regarding a new Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) program. The $10 million Income-Eligible Senior Energy Assistance Program will help qualifying senior citizens pay their electric bills.
“The $200 bill credit is going to ease the burden of Long Island seniors who are able to participate,” Senator Hannon said.
To qualify for a one-time $200 credit you must be 62 years of age or older, be a LIPA electric account holder and follow the income-eligibility guidelines outlined in the below chart:
|Household Size||Monthly Income Limit ($)||Annual Income Limit ($)|
Seniors meeting the above requirements may apply in person at any LIPA Customer Service Center or by mail. Applications can be obtained by visiting www.lipower.org/seniors or by calling 1-800-490-0025. For a free informational brochure on the program, call Senator Hannon’s office at 739-1700.
