Utility Rights and Older Adults

Wednesday, September 26, 2018

Utility vulnerability can place older adults in dangerous situations and threaten their health and safety. This webcast will provide an overview of utility rights and programs to help older adults retain their utility connections. The webcast will include an overview of different state rules that may protect older adults from termination of electricity and natural gas service, and how to apply. The presenter will also describe programs that can help to reduce utility bills for eligible consumers, such as the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) and the federal Weatherization Assistance Program. The program is presented by the National Center on Law & Elder Rights and the presenter is Jennifer Bosco of the National Consumer Law Center.
