Back on Track (fomerly known as the Support Tariff) – if you're behind with your water bills and  are on benefits (PDF 744 KB opens in a new window), we can get you straight by putting you on a fixed amount, depending on your circumstances.

 Piggy bank Help to pay – if you’re receiving Pension Credit (PDF 312 KB opens in a new window) and struggling to make payments, you can apply to have your bill capped at an affordable amount based on your income and outgoings. This will include us looking at all possible ways of reducing your charges.
Pound signs Payment matching – if you’ve built up a lot of debt, for every £1 you pay we’ll match it with £1 to get it paid off twice as fast. After six months, for every £1 you pay, we'll pay £2 until you've paid off what you owe.
coins Restart – if you’re in real financial difficulty, you could qualify for a one-off payment from our Trust Fund to help clear your debts and start afresh.
 Waterdrop Water Direct – if you're on benefits, we can make it easier for you to budget for your bills by applying to the Department for Work and Pensions to pay your bill direct from your benefits.
waterdrop Help for customers with a water meter – if you have a water meter and receive benefits, and use a lot of water due to ill health or having a large family, our WaterSure scheme caps your annual bill, regardless of how much water you use (PDF 1,523 KB opens in a new window).
