Questions About Your Billing Statement or Account?

Have you noticed fees such as late payment fees, connection fees or returned check fees that KCP&L did not disclose? If you are needing further clarification, your should review the KCP&L Customer Resource Page. For additional information, contact customer service at 1-888-471-5275.

How the Penalty Fees Work

There is no mention of penalty fees on the KCP&L website, but we are quite certain the company charges similar fees to other electric companies, including late payment fees, disconnection fees, reconnection fees and returned check fees.

I Can’t Make a Payment

The disconnection policy for KCP&L was written in 1989, but it clearly states that customers can request a payment arrangement from the company if they can prove why timely payments cannot be made. This clause gives KCP&L the right to ask why payment cannot be made and, in some cases, the company may suggest ways to obtain the money needed to make your bill payment. However, payment arrangements are available from the company.

It is best to contact customer service before you receive your disconnect bill. By the time the disconnect notice is sent, your account has already incurred late charges.

KCP&L also offers information on:

7 Comments on “KCPL Bill
  1. I have always paid my electric bill with never a threat of disconnection. I am a 63 year old widow who has been unemployed since sept. 2013. Placed on disability in may 2014 due to poor health. I missed a payment due to hospitization. I am now required to pay over $400 as i was on budget billing. I explained my situation and was told i need to come up with $204 on june 3rd or will be disconnected. Same for july. I do not receive my disabity check until the second wed. Of the month. Customer service refused to take any less at any later date.

  2. KCP&L is absolutely REFUSING to help me with any arrangements! I have been with them 7 years and have lost my job recently, I received a shut off notice and they said since I had a shut off notice they could not make any payment arrangements with me. I have already sent KCPL half of the balance due. I can’t pay the other half until this coming Friday (with today, Tuesday October14th, being the disconnect date) they will in NO WAY offer me any help or so much as to work with me. I had a Community Action Agency call KCPL an they told them they could pay the remaining balance November 1st if I was for some reason unable to pay the other half Friday 17th. this place pretty much begged then to keep me on the other half was going to get paid one way or another! KCPL still said no that I will be shut off if not paid TODAY!II have two young children I am very very disappointed and upset with KCP&L right now I am about to call again to see if they could at least wait until later in the day tomorrow so I can try other places to help I can’t afford reconnect fee or my children getting sick because of the cold weather and yes it is going to be cold tonightand tomorrow night it has been!

    • I want to know what to do about Mr David Ferrins outstanding utilities bills since the owner of the 6410 58thst house has died in his sleep Tuesday Morning @ 2;30 am thank you james Hague

  3. I would like to view my bill but cannot access it because it requires my account number. I pay the bill by automatic withdrawal from my bank account so I do not receive any paper statements that would have an account number. The password I have used in the past is not valid now. Why won’t it work? How can I view my bill? This is very discouraging!

  4. My mother in law paid a $500 Yesterday morning at 7:30am and they have yet to come out and turn it back on and she is 67 yrs old and needs to have her insulin refrigerated. Whats the deal ? Why wouldn’t they come out first thing this morning to reconnect her electricitythiIts wrong and cruel if u ask me.She has called and called this morning whats the hold up?
