KEYS delivers discount program for senior citizens and disabled veterans
Originally published February 15, 2013
KEYS Energy Services in Key West, Fla., is once again offering a discount program for its residential customers who are senior citizens and/or disabled veterans. Once qualified, those customers will receive a $9.53 discount on their monthly energy bills in 2013.
KEYS began offering the program in the 1960s because of a requirement established by the Florida Legislature. The requirement was an effort to assist customers with fixed incomes, the utility said.
Out of a customer base of approximately 29,000, approximately 450 eligible customers participated in the program in 2012, the utility said.
Customers must be at least 62 years of age to qualify for the senior citizen discount. A customer wishing to qualify for the disabled veteran discount must be a totally or permanently disabled American veteran. Qualifying customers’ annual household incomes must not exceed $30,396 for 2013. This figure is based on the maximum benefits paid by Social Security, the utility said.
KEYS customers have until March 31 to apply and all participants must re-qualify yearly.
