How does it work?

To pay your bills online, simply add the companies and people you want to pay. We use this information to make the payments for your bills. After you add your bills, you can go to the Payment Center. The Pay Bills section lists all of the bills you have added. To pay a bill, enter a payment amount and the date when you want the company or person to receive your payment. You can also select this date from the calendar. Pay as many bills as you want at the same time from the Payment Center.

After you pay a bill, it may move to either the Pending Payments section or the Recent Payments section of the Payment Center.

Pending Payments: Provide a quick summary of the payments that have not yet been processed.

Recent Payments: Provide a list of bills that have been paid in the past 45 days.

You can also find a list of the pending and recent payments for a particular biller in the Payment Assistant. If you cannot find a payment in the Recent Payments section, go to Bill History, which shows all of the bills you have paid in the past 24 months, including electronic bills and the bills that you pay automatically.
