Payment Support Victoria
We understand that sometimes you just need a little extra help with your bill.
Having trouble paying ongoing bills?
Financial challenges can arise from a sudden change in income, illness or other matters. If you’re having a hard time paying your energy bills, our Payment Support Victoria program could offer you some extra support.
Payment Support Victoria is our hardship program for Victorian customers and provides support that goes beyond traditional payment plans.
This support is confidential and is designed to help you get back on track with your home energy bill, repay your overdue bills and lower your ongoing usage costs.
We understand that every circumstance is different. So we’ll consider your current financial situation and what you can afford to pay before we make any recommendations – that way, your support is tailored to you.
As part of Payment Support Victoria, you can access a flexible payment arrangement or get advice on your future energy costs and how you can lower them. And if you can't pay your ongoing energy costs, you may be entitled to additional support such as a six-month freeze on your outstanding debt, assistance to find an AGL energy offer that’s most likely to reduce your home’s energy costs, and tips and tools to assist you to safely reduce your energy costs.
Payment Support Victoria is available to Victorian customers who are experiencing temporary or long-term financial difficulty that makes it hard to pay their gas and/or electricity bills.

Our team will assist you with compassion and understanding that includes keeping your information confidential.
While you are actively participating in the Payment Support Victoria program, we will ensure your home gas or electricity is not disconnected and there is no collection action on your account.
We recognise that our customers may experience situations of violence or abuse in their personal lives and want to ensure we are doing everything we can to promote a safe and supportive environment. Further information along with AGL’s Family and Domestic Violence Policy can be viewed here.
