How to enroll using a paper form

There are two options to enroll in AutoPay using a paper form:
 

  1. Complete the AutoPay enrollment form. Download a copy of the form below, fill in the blanks and mail it to us. (You'll need to provide your CenturyLink account number; if you don't know it, there are a few places you can find it.)
  2. Complete the form on the back of your bill remittance slip. On the back of the first page of your CenturyLink bill, you'll find an AutoPay Authorization section. Provide the requested information and mail it in along with your payment.

Payment methods accepted for AutoPay

With AutoPay, you can use these forms of payment:

  • Checking account
  • Savings account

When will AutoPay take effect?

AutoPay will take effect on the next billing cycle after you enroll. You should continue to pay your bill as before until you receive confirmation that AutoPay is active. You will know it is active when you see "You're signed up for AutoPay" in My CenturyLink or "Thank you for using our automatic payment system" on your bill.

What is your payment date with AutoPay?

Your AutoPay payment will occur on your bill due date.  Your bill due date can be found on the first page of your bill or in My CenturyLink.
Your AutoPay payment will occur 18 days after your bill date.  The "bill date" is not the due date for your bill, but the date it was issued. You can find this date on the first page of your bill.
