Automatic Payment is a great way to have your energy bills paid automatically.

How does it work?
Complete the Automatic Payment Agreement Form authorizing your bank, credit union or savings and loan to automatically deduct the amount of your UPPCO bill from your account each month. Send the form to us now or along with your next payment and include a voided check from your
checkbook. We’ll take care of the rest.

Can my payment be deducted from a savings account?
Yes. However, there are a few different stepsyou’ll need to follow. In addition to the signed agreement, you’ll need to:

  • Verify that your bank will deduct payments from a savings account. (Some don’t).
  • Send on a separate piece of paper:
    • Your bank name and ABA number (obtain from your bank)
    • The savings account number you want to use
    • Your signature (in addition to the one on the agreement)

Please send this information to the address indicated on the Automatic Payment Agreement Form.

How is it easier than paying by check each month?
You don’t pay for postage or gasoline. There’s no check to write. And you’ll never be late for a payment.

Do I pay any charges for Automatic Payment?
Absolutely not! Automatic Payment is a free service from UPPCO, although your financial institution may charge for this type of transaction. You may want to call them and ask. However, you will still save the money you’re currently spending on stamps, gasoline and checks.

Will I still get a bill from UPPCO?
Yes, just like you do currently. And the upcoming date and amount of the Automatic Payment will be printed right on the bill, so you’ll know exactly how much will be deducted and when. You’ll have plenty of time to review and call with any questions before the payment is made.

Is it possible to select the due date of my bill?
Yes, you can choose the day you pay! You can have your payment deducted from your account on any day of the month you choose — first of the month, middle of the month or whatever day is best for you.

How soon after I sign up will my Automatic Payment payments begin?
Your payments will begin with either the first or second UPPCO bill you receive after you sign up for the plan. You’ll know your next payment will be made automatically when you see the words “Automatic Payment Amount” on the stub portion of your bill.

How will I know my bill has been paid?
Your Automatic Payment deduction will be listed on your monthly bank statement as an item labeled “UPPCO – Automatic Payment.” Also, your UPPCO bill each month will show your previous balance and the payment made through the Automatic Payment program.

What if there isn’t enough money in my bank account to cover the payment?
Just as if you were paying normally by check, a returned check fee will be charged to your account if there are non-sufficient funds.

What happens if I change financial institutions?
It’s easy. You simply fill out a new agreement and send it along with a new voided check. We’ll take care of the transfer for you. Please note, depending on the timing of this change, your account may not transfer on the next bill you receive. Therefore, you may need to send payment for one bill.

What if I move?
If you move to another address served by UPPCO but do not change financial institutions, we’ll simply transfer the information required to your new account. If you change financial institutions, we’ll need you to fill out the online form again with the new information.
