How far in advance of the due date should I schedule my payments?
Bill Pay will not allow you to schedule payments for due dates that we cannot meet. The earliest available payment date will automatically pre-fill when you enter a payment amount. You can also choose a payment date from the pop-up calendar, where unavailable payment dates are grayed out.
Scheduling pay dates sufficiently in advance of the due date on the bill allows enough time for the biller to receive the payment and credit it to your account. We recommend that you schedule your payments to be received a few business days before the actual payment due date.
Whether the payment is electronic or sent by mail, billers may not always credit your account on the same day that they receive the payment. Allow for extra time in this situation so the payment is not considered late. If you want to verify the payment or the credit to your account, you may want to wait a day or two before contacting the biller.
