NIPSCO announced just before deadline today that, effective immediately, it is voluntarily suspending shut-offs for non-payment, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This suspension will apply to residential, commercial, and industrial customers and will remain in effect until further notice,” NIPSCO said.

“In addition, NIPSCO will offer its most flexible payment plans to customers who indicate either an impact or hardship as a result of COVID-19 and will suspend late payment charges until May 1,” the company said.

“The safety of our employees and customers is at the forefront of everything we do at NIPSCO,” President Violet Sistovaris said. “We are taking a proactive, coordinated approach to prevent, mitigate, and respond to COVID-19.”

Any customer who has received a termination notice or is having trouble paying his/her bill should call (800) 464-7726 to discuss payment arrangements and/or financial assistance programs,” NIPSCO added.
