INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana utilities are warning customers that the state moratorium on disconnections for non-payment of bills is ending.

The seasonal moratorium prevents utilities from disconnecting customers who meet low-income guidelines and have received federal and state utility heating assistance.

Vectren Energy Delivery, which has gas customers across much of Indiana, is urging customers who have received a disconnect notice or need bill payment assistance to contact the utility online using its Live Chat feature or at 1-800-227-1376 to make payment arrangements and avoid potential disconnection.

Vectren has pledged $750,000 to help customers having trouble paying their bills.

Vectren says its moratorium on disconnecting service ends Monday. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
