The only viable option is to have a card meter installed. If you on a low income, you may only have to pay £4.00 a week on the card towards the debt.

Give them a call and ask them to accept installments until it is paid up. If you have a lot of outgoings, have you worked out how much you have coming in and going out yet? It maybe possible to reduce other bills to stop you from robbing Peter to pay Paul.

Once an account has reached the disconnection notice stage, most suppliers are unlikely to accept instalment repayments as ample time has been allowed for an agreement to be reached. As borisbeaver has said the only option is to have a prepay meter fitted and the debt set on the meter. If you are on benefits then the repayment rate should be set at £4.00 per week.


It would also be a good idea to make sure that their readings match the reading on the meter as estimates are frequently used and it may be possible that the amount owing is less than they are asking for.


Do not sit back and do nothing as the next stage would be an application in a Magistrates Court for a Warrant of Entry, this will add around £150.00 to the debt outstanding and then gives the supplier the right to gain entry to your property. Call them and ask for the prepay meter to be fitted as soon as possible.

The advice I give in relation to benefits should be viewed as general advice and not specific to your individual claim circumstances. I cannot give specific advice on your claim as I cannot access the claim.
