Sign Me Up For Paperless Billing!

There are no charges for going paperless.  It is simply a choice you now have.  Currently we can only send email to one email address.  At your request we can also send a paper bill.  Late notices will be mailed. Automatic Bank Draft or automatic Credit Card Drafts are a great complement to paperless bills, making it even more convenient.  

Once you sign up for paperless billing your AMUD statements will be emailed to the email address you have provided.  The email is from TOP@AMUD.COM.  And this email will have an attachement of your billing statement the next time billing is calculated for your area. 

What to do if you do not receive an email:

Check your spam folder, deleted mail folder or junk folder.

Payment through Financial Institution Online Bill Pay Warning

Many financial institutions such as major banks offer their customers the ability to pay their bills via an online bill payment service (through your bank’s website). Normally, these services debit the customer’s checking or savings account to pay the bill.  Depending on the financial institution, they may or may not charge a fee for the service.  Payments may take up to seven business days to post to the customer’s account.  Please consult with your bank for more information.  Payments are posted to your account on the day they are received in the office.  AMUD does not accept electronic transfers directly from outside sources.
