Support for Customers Affected by a Major Disaster

At SCE, we will work with customers affected by major disasters to help ease them through recovery by providing payment arrangements as necessary, assisting with establishing service at temporary locations, ensuring our income-eligible customers receive necessary support information, and expediting rebuilding with a dedicated Service Planning team. Here are some additional items for consideration:

Payment Arrangements

If you’re experiencing temporary financial setbacks as a result of the disaster, you may be able to defer a payment until a later date. You can set up your payment arrangements online through My Account or by calling us at 1-800-250-7339.

Submit a Claim

If you need to file a claim, we’re here to provide guidance and support every step of the way. Call us at 1-800-251-3311 or submit your claim online.

Support for Income-qualified Customers

During a major disaster, in an effort to assist California Alternate Rates for Energy (CARE) customers who may be impacted, we freeze all income verifications. Also, any pending verifications for customers in impacted areas will be canceled. For information on how to qualify for CARE, please call1-800-251-3311.

Additionally, the Energy Assistance Fund(EAF) is committed to providing critical support in helping customers pay their electric bills when they need it most. Please click on this link to learn more about it.
