Extended Due Date Plan

The Extended Due Date Plan allows qualifying members to change their payment due date to coincide or follow receipt of fixed income. Residential members whose income checks from any of the sources listed below are not normally received by the regular bill due date, are eligible to apply for an extended due date. Qualifying income sources are as follows:

  • Persons receiving Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC), or Aid to the Aged, Blind and Disabled (AABD).
  • Persons receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI); or,
  • Persons whose primary source of income is Social Security or Veterans Administration disability or retirement benefits.

If the member does not pay their bill by the close of the business on the extended due date two (2) consecutive times, or any three (3) times in the last 12 months, the
cooperative will remove the member from the Extended Due Date Plan. The cooperative will notify the member in writing when removed from the plan for late
payments. 

Members may request enrollment by completing the Extended Due Date application. Once qualified, participation will continue each month thereafter, as long as the
member's account remains active. Verification of income being received by the member may be required.

The extended due date will be moved to the billing cycle that coincides with the member's check receipt date. For more information, visit a First Electric office or click here to e-mail us.
