Mailed Payments

As part of our effort to increase efficiency, we have contracted with a payment processor to handle mail payments. This move allows us to avoid investing in new equipment to handle a diminishing number of check payments and saves labor costs.

Most customers, including those enrolled in IREA’s Auto Pay program, are not affected by this change. Customers who mail their monthly bill payments, however, need to send them to a central payment processor outside the state.

The new payment address is Intermountain Rural Electric Association, P.O. Box 6437, Carol Stream, IL 60197-6437. This address appears on your monthly bill’s payment remittance form, which is the portion you return inside the window envelope we include with each mailed monthly bill. Customers who use the provided remittance form and envelope and those who pay electronically do nothing different when sending their payment. Those who opt to hand-address their own envelope, however, must do so with the new address. Customers who use third-party billers to pay their IREA bill may need to update IREA’s mailing address with their bank or other third-party biller.

Customers who send us check payments and some customers
who use bank bill-pay options should do the following:

If you use the pre-printed remittance envelope we include with your mailed monthly bill, no additional action is necessary. The remittance form you include with your payment shows the correct address. The provided window envelope requires postage.

If you use your own hand-addressed envelope, you must include the correct mailing address:

Intermountain Rural Electric Association
P.O. Box 6437
Carol Stream, IL 60197-6437

This new mailing address is also available on your monthly bill.

If you use a bill-pay service provided by your bank or another third party, you might need to update IREA’s mailing address within your bill-pay service, depending on how your payer submits payments. Some banks and bill-payers use electronic payments, while some pay bills with checks mailed to us. Listed below are banks and payers that we know send paper checks and will require an update. The new address is Intermountain Rural Electric Association, P.O. Box 6437, Carol Stream, IL 60197-6437.
