INDIVIDUAL OUT-OF-SERVICE DEBTS
An account statement with payment coupon and return envelope are provided for your convenience. If you elect to make regular monthly payments, you will receive your monthly account/billing statement approximately 3-4 weeks prior to the next payment due date. Accounts not paid-in-full within 30 days from the initial notification date are considered delinquent and assessed interest and other charges as required by law (see other charges on account below).
Online Payments (Pay.gov)
Credit cards are no longer accepted as a payment option for online payments. Amazon Pay and PayPal accounts (linked to credit cards) are no longer available as payment options. Pay.gov payment options are bank branded debit cards, checking and saving accounts (ACH) and PayPal (linked to checking and saving accounts only - ACH). Questions?
