Good news, our Resolve Scheme can help if you’re struggling to catch up on previous bills. The aim is for you to be debt- free so you can continue with your on-going charges at an affordable amount.
We’ll agree regular payments with you for a minimum of 12 months. As you make your payments, awards towards your arrears will be added to your account. This will be done every three months.
To qualify you must be on a low income or non-deductible benefit and have arrears that are over 12 months old.
To find out more, just give us a ring on 0345 1 299 299.
Water Direct Scheme
If you receive a deductible income-based benefit, you may be eligible for our Water Direct Scheme.
What is a deductible income- based benefit?
- Universal Credits
- Jobseekers Allowance
- Employment and Support Allowance
- Pension Credit.
It makes it easier for you, as we’ll take payments directly from your benefits. Less hassle, less worry!
If you have at least £70.00 arrears we can arrange for the Department for Works and Pensions to deduct a fixed amount from your benefit. You won’t have to make payments yourself and it will stop any recovery action on your arrears.
To see if we can do this, please call us on 0345 1 299 299.
If you’re struggling to pay your water bill, we really are here to help. Give us a call on 0345 1 299 299 and we can discuss the best way forward for you.
