  • The due date is the date by which we must receive your payment in order for it to be on time. Your bill lists the due date.

    Your due date will always fall on the same calendar day of the month. It will be at least 21 days from the date that we send you the bill, and at least 25 days from the end of your most recently ended billing period.

    To be on time, we must receive your payment on or before the due date and by the time stated on your bill. If the bill does not state a time, then your payment is on time if we receive it by 5 pm on the due date. The 5 pm deadline is measured in the time zone in which we receive the payment, which may not be your time zone.

    If we do not receive or accept payments by mail on the due date, your payment will be on time if it is received by the next day that we accept or receive payments by mail.
