Ameren Illinois customers with past due balances will have a limited time opportunity to establish a repayment plan by paying 10-percent of their outstanding balance instead of the normal 25-percent. After making the initial payment, customers will then payoff the remaining balance in monthly installments according to Ameren Illinois Spokesman Leigh Morris.
Morris says that customers will have until March 31st to establish a plan and that if they don't take advantage of this offer, they will be required to pay 25-percent of their outstanding balance before they are allowed to set up a payment plan. After March 31st, residential customers with past due amounts who have failed to establish or have broken a payment plan will be subject to service disconnection on April 1st.
