Topeka, Kan., Feb. 10, 2014 — Westar Energy customer advisers are assisting Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP) applicants over the upcoming weeks throughout the company’s service territory.
On-site application assistance is an outreach program that assists individuals who need help completing their LIEAP application. Applications are being accepted through March 31, 2014. A Westar Energy customer adviser will be available at the Salvation Army, 307 E. 6th, from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., Feb. 12. The full schedule for application assistance is available at http://www.westarenergy.com/lieap.
“According to DCF-LIEAP staff, several thousand applications are rejected annually due to an incomplete application or failing to provide supporting documents in order to qualify for LIEAP benefits,” Jeff Beasley, vice president, customer care, said. “These on-site events help individuals understand the application process and what is needed to receive those benefits.”
LIEAP is a federally funded program that helps eligible households pay a portion of their home energy costs by providing a one-time per year benefit. To learn more about eligibility requirements or fill out a LIEAP application, visit the Kansas Department for Children and Families website or call 1-800-432-0043.
