September Great Time to Renew PIPPposted 9/4/19 -- September is a Great Time to Renew Your PIPP Enrollment LCCAA encourages PIPP participants to reverify their information during September and October.
Percentage of Income Payment Plan Plus allows eligible residents to reduce their energy bills to a percentage of their income and avoid crisis situations. Even if a reverification date is not until later, coming in during September and October will help avoid the crowds that often gather when the Winter Crisis Program starts Nov. 1.
Once enrolled, PIPP customers must make their regular payments to remain on the program. Staying current also earns PIPP customers credit toward arrearages.
To be eligible for PIPP, residents must live at or below 150 percent of the Federal Poverty Line AND be customers of utilities regulated by the State of Ohio. Under PIPP Plus, if you heat with gas, you pay 6 percent of your household income to your gas company and 6 percent of your household income to your electric company. If you heat with electricity, you pay 10 percent of your household income to your electric company.
LCCAA has four different locations where you can reverify or enroll in PIPP. Make an appointment by calling 1-855-806-9620 or visiting www.capappointments.com.
