Declare your independence from paper bills and physically mailing payments with IREAâ€™s electronic billing and automatic bill payment options, both of which now feature online enrollment.
Electronic billing combines your bill with a free and secure payment option that is sent to your email address as an attached PDF file. Free, secure and easy to use, you can access and pay the eBill as it arrives in your inbox without having to remember any username or password. One click and youâ€™re in.
With free automatic bill pay, your bill is automatically paid on time each month. Using a checking or savings account of your choice, funds will automatically be withdrawn on your due date, ensuring on-time, effortless payment every month.
IREAâ€™s recently redesigned website now allows customers to sign up online for both electronic billing and automatic bill payment. Visit Payment Options for more info.
Below are some frequently asked questions about eBilling and Auto Pay:
I submitted my Auto Pay Authorization form. When will it start?
Enrollment processing may take up to 5 business days. Auto Pay will not apply to any bill generated before enrollment processing is complete. If you receive a bill that does not state â€śautomatic paymentâ€ť on the payment stub, pay that bill using another option.
Can I stop my Auto Pay payment from going through just this month?
Yes, call Consumer Services at (800) 332-9540 at least 5 business days before the due date on your bill.
Can I sign up for Auto Pay using my credit or debit card?
Not at this time.
Can I be on eBilling and Auto Pay at the same time?
Yes, you can. If you are on Auto Pay, there will be no payment option from within your secure PDF bill. The full bill amount and draft date will be stated instead.
How do I pay for free?
Check or cash payments are free whether taken at an IREA office or mailed in. Our free electronic payments include Auto Pay and payments using a savings or checking account within our eBill PDF file. Many banks also offer free electronic bill payment options. Customers are encouraged to check with their financial institution. IREA does not charge customers fees for these types of bank bill payments.
