Benefits

MONTHLY BENEFIT SCHEDULE

ASAP’s program year begins in January and ends in December each year.  As a Partner Program, benefits are only paid if participants pay their bill in FULL and by the DUE date each month.

  • Benefit months are based on when your bill was mailed and not when it is due.
  • Your Partner Payment is the “Pay this Amount” box at the top of the bill.
  • To receive TIMELY Payments, your account must be CURRENT.
  • ASAP Payments are made directly to your LG&E account before each new bill prints.
  • Participants should always: Pay the FULL remaining balance of their bill by each DUE date.
  • If your account is Past Due, then it will be put “On Hold”, a letter will be sent and your payment will be delayed until the account has a zero balance.
  • Never Subtract the ASAP Payment from your bill.
  • A benefit payment was made to your LG&E account if the Billing Information Section of your bill reads: “An HEA payment was credited to your account”.
  • If your account is current, but the above notice is not found on your bill, then contact LG&E at 589-1444.
  • When speaking with a representative, ask for the number of payments by month.    I.E.: for March, ask if you’ve received 3 HEA /ASAP payments.

BBP MONTHLY BENEFIT SCHEDULE

In addition to the information above:

  • As a Participant on LG&E’s Budget Billing Program, review the back of your LG&E statement each month to monitor the “Actual Account Balance after paying this bill”. These charges are for the excess usage over your monthly budget. Try to keep a zero balance.
  • Finally, keep track of your “Budget Settlement Month” to prepare yourself for the additional usage charges that will be due during your anniversary month, along with your budget amount.
