Is AutoPay right for you?
AutoPay is our automatic, monthly payment system. With it, we debit an account of your choosing the amount you owe for your CenturyLink bill. Your bill is always paid on time, without you having to worry about it.
You might think this sounds like a nice idea but be wondering if it is right for you. If you're looking for ways to save time and/or improve your personal security, AutoPay might be exactly right for you.
Save time by shrinking your to-do list
Signing up for AutoPay only takes a few minutes. Then, your bill is automatically paid each month, which means fewer things on your already long to-do list.
For instance, do any of these things sound familiar?
- Realizing your due date has snuck up on you
- Hurriedly searching for your bill at the last minute
- Carving out time to sit down and write a check
- Rushing to the post office to mail a payment
- Not getting your payment in on time and paying a late fee
With AutoPay, you don't have to do these things. Instead, your bill takes care of itself. You get an email if anything is out of whack, and you can sign in to your account to double check your statement, payment status or any other account detail -- any time you want.
Benefit from a little extra security
As for whether it's secure, it is. We take protecting your personal information very seriously, and we use all the latest encryption technology to protect your financial data. In fact, in some ways, using AutoPay is more secure than mailing a payment. When you drop your payment in the mail, it goes out into the world -- touched by many hands, passed between all sorts of people.
Did you know? With AutoPay, you continue to get a paper bill unless you tell us you don't want one. Of course, more and more people are deciding paperless is for them. After all, going paperless has a few advantages. Among other things, it helps minimize your paper trail -- giving identity thieves fewer chances to get their hands on your billing information (like via the trash). When you sign up for paperless billing, we email you when your bill is ready to view, and you can look at it online, where it's safe and secure behind our high-end firewall.
