UPDATE AS OF 6/25/2020: PULP is proud to share that last week, Governor Cuomo signed the COVID-19 utility shutoff moratorium bill into law (Ch. 108 of 2020). This consumer protection legislation bolsters measures to help low-income utility customers and other individuals affected by the current economic hardships.
The law applies to utilities, water-works corporations, municipalities, and telephone corporations;
It prevents the companies from disconnecting or terminating service to residential customers during the pandemic;
It requires providers to turn a service back on within 48 hours if it had been shut off since the “New York on PAUSE” order began;
Terminations would be prohibited up to six months after the pandemic;
The six-month clock will start when the Governor's office lifts the state of emergency brought on by the pandemic, or on March 31, 2021;
The law includes consumer protections such as allowing customers to enter into, or restructure, a deferred payment agreement on their services;
In the meantime, while no terminations should occur, if someone you know loses service during the pandemic, please:
Call the NYS Department of Public Service’s Emergency Hotline at 1-800-342-3355.
Then contact PULP so that we can also offer assistance at 877-669-2572.
