Start paperless billing

Depending on which services you have with us, you can choose to get electronic delivery of your bill. After you go paperless, it's a good idea to set up email alerts so you know when your bill is available and ready to be downloaded.

Skip notes and jump to instructions 

  • Some local service accounts aren't eligible for paperless billing (accounts are marked with Unavailable in the Paperless Billing column).

  • Signing up for paperless billing doesn't change your monthly due date.

  • You can always print or save a copy of your bill.

  • You will receive a paper bill until your paperless request takes effect, which is usually within two billing cycles.

  • Your bill is available online within approximately four days of your billing date.

  • If you sign up for paperless billing, you can continue to use the method of payment you've been using.

  • If you ever have problems receiving emails from us, check your spam, bulk or junk folders, and then add CenturyLink to your approved senders list.

  • If you really want to make managing your CenturyLink bill easy, sign up for Autopay. Your payment is automatically debited from your checking, savings, or credit card account each month.
