To qualify for our Family Electric Rate Assistance (FERA) or California Alternate Rates for Energy (CARE) programs, you must meet the current income guidelines or have someone residing in your household who participates in a qualifying public assistance program.
We do not require you to submit proof of eligibility when you apply to FERA or CARE; however, after enrollment you may be required to participate in the FERA or CARE verification process at any time during your enrollment.
To continue receiving your FERA or CARE program discount, you need to provide specific documentation within 90 days from the date indicated on the letter or email you received. You may prove eligibility based on income OR participation in a qualifying public assistance program.
The fastest way to verify your eligibility for either the FERA or CARE program is by submitting your Eligibility Verification Form online. You may expect to receive a response within 24-48 hours.
You may complete the Eligibility Verification Form and upload all supporting Proof of Income or Public Assistance Program documentation* on the SCE website.
You may also download and submit the completed form and supporting Proof of Income or Public Assistance Program documentation* via U.S. mail . Expect a response time of approximately three weeks to one month.
Note: If submitting by U.S. mail, please allow sufficient transit time for your application to arrive before the verification due date.
