You can get helpful payment arrangements from Benton PUD!
All customers can change their bill’s due date once per year. This can help you save on late fees caused by inconvenient due dates.

Several agencies can help you pay your Benton PUD bill!
Benton Franklin Community Action Committee provides assistance with power bills! You can get bill payment assistance through the Helping Hands Program and the federal LIHEAP program. Helping Hands funds are dependent upon donations from various utilities in the area. LIHEAP is federally-funded and provides a once-per-year benefit to assist with your energy costs.
Veterans and their families can receive additional assistance on past-due bills through the Benton and Franklin Counties Department of Human Services. Families of deceased veterans are also eligible for this program.
