How to find your account balance

There are a few ways to quickly find your current balance and/or billing date.

Find it on your paper bill

You can find your current balance and due date at the top of the first page of your paper bill.

  • Total Current Charges (or New Charges): what you owe this month
  • Amount Due (or Total Amount Due): what you owe, including any previous balances
  • Amount Due By (or Payment Due By): the due date for this month's current charges
IMPORTANT - The due date on the current bill doesn't apply to the past due amount. If you have a past due amount and haven't already paid it, then you should, as soon as possible. Don't wait until the due date of the current bill to pay the past due amount. Why? Charges that remain unpaid can result in late fees and/or suspension of service, and late fees may be charged each month for any eligible unpaid balances not paid in full by your next bill date.
If you sent a payment but we didn't receive it by the due date, you will see the previous balance on your current bill. In this case, you only need to pay the new charges.

The information that appears in the Billing and Payments section of My CenturyLink is personalized to reflect information about your account.  You will see one or more of the following line items.

Billed Amount – what you owe this month

Current Amount Due – what you owe, including any previous balances*

Payment Due By – the due date for the current Billed Amount

Note: If you do not see a "Payment Due By" line item, it is probably becuase you are on AutoPay.  You will see an AutoPay message below your "Billed Amount" or "Current Amount Due".

*The Current Amount Due reflects a daily running total of debits and credits to your account through today's date. It may be higher or lower than the Billed Amount, depending on the exact dates of the billing cycle.
