Energy bills and other utilities are priority bills and falling behind with their payments can put you in arrears. These can quickly spiral out of control, particularly now when the cost of living has never been higher. There are options available to help with repayment towards current arrears and your existing supplier can provide you with more information. If you have arrears with previous suppliers, speak to one of our advisors who can provide you with advice based on your current personal circumstances.
