When it comes to helping our members, we always encourage working smarter, not harder. Automatic bill payment isn’t just a modern convenience; it’s the smarter way to manage your NEC Co-op Energy account. It’s a small change that can save you time, protect your account, avoid late payments, improve your credit score and have a big impact on your overall well-being. 

Adjusting your routine may sound troublesome, but setting up auto payment is actually simple. Our user-friendly system allows you to customize your payment preference while enjoying the benefits of automated bill management. This means you can choose the payment method that works best for you, whether it’s a credit card, bank account, or other options. If necessary, members can stop or reschedule the automatic payment at any time. 

It’s not just a different way. It’s really the better way. Let us explain some more. 

It saves you time. 

When you set up auto payment with NEC Co-op Energy, your monthly bills are processed automatically by your chosen bank account. This means you don’t have to manually pay each bill, freeing you up for more important tasks, like baking cookies with your grandkids or watching one last episode of your favorite show. Your bills are taken care of without you having to lift a finger. 

It protects your finances. 

Relying on traditional mail to send your payments can be risky. Mail services are affected by inclement weather, national holidays, and mail can also get lost in transit. These potential mail service delays can cause your payments to arrive late, resulting in late fees, interest charges and even potential disruptions to your service. From a security standpoint, verified and encrypted payments through a credit card or a bank account are preferable over cash or a check sent in an envelope. 

With auto payment, you can eliminate delays and security threats by ensuring your payments are always made securely and on time. Whether you’re busy at work or on a family vacation, your payment will always be processed, keeping your bill current and your finances safe.  

It takes a load off. 

Life can be hectic and important responsibilities, such as bill payment, can fall through the cracks. Better financial management leads to a more organized life. This is especially helpful when you are distracted by work deadlines, family obligations, or personal commitments. By automating your payments, you can reduce the mental load of remembering due dates and avoid the stress of managing multiple bills.  

It can increase your credit score. 

Consistently making payments on time is crucial for maintaining a good credit score. Setting up auto payment can help ensure your payments are always made on time, keeping your NEC Co-op Energy account in good standing. Over time, this can positively impact your credit score, making it easier for you to obtain loans, credit cards, and favorable interest rates. Auto payment is a simple yet effective way to build and maintain a strong credit history, providing long-term financial benefits.
