Ameren Illinois customers with past due balances will have an 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, but you have to get your arrangements hammered out by the end of the month.

Ameren Illinois Spokesman Paula Nixon says even if you have been on a payment arrangement in the last year, you should qualify.
