Late Payment FAQ
Is your account past due?
If your due date has passed or you have a payment arrangement you have not kept, contact the AEC office right away. In most cases, we can offer some additional payment time.
What will happen if I don’t pay by the due date?
The short answer is, your service will be disconnected. Disconnecting services for the non-payment is the last thing we want to do. That's why we encourage members to contact the AEC office.
If you receive a delinquent notice on your bill, you will need to respond by the date hi-lighted in the message and also listed in red at the bottom of the bill as the “Disconnect Date. ”
If you have already made a payment arrangement and find you can’t keep the date, be sure to contact the AEC office to see if new arrangements can be made. If no arrangement exists or an arrangement has been broken, a message will be sent to the phone number(s) we have on file letting you know to respond by a specific date and time to avoid disconnection.
This will be your only message.
Don’t wait for this message to be sent. Why? We may not have a good phone number for you. You can contact the office by phone or email to find out what phone numbers are listed for your account or view your account online.
If you haven’t set up a username/password, use your account number as both your username and password. Once you've obtained access you can change your profile information including your username and password by clicking on ”My Account.”
