Can utility companies shut off service during bankruptcy?
A utility company may not shut off service solely because you file bankruptcy or because you owe them money at the time you file. However, if you don’t give them an adequate deposit or other assurance of payment within 20 days after filing, the Bankruptcy Code allows them to shut off service. State utility regulations frequently have provisions that restrict utility shutoffs, however. For example, your state may not allow an energy company to shut off service during the winter months if that would deprive you of heat. Also for example, your state may not allow certain kinds of utility to demand a deposit from anyone.
