Payment Reminders - Answers
1. What is a Payment Reminder?
Payment Reminders provide the ability to set up a one-time or repeating e-mail that will be sent to your designated e-mail address on the date you wish to be notified about an upcoming payment due date. You can create as many reminders as you wish. You can create and edit payment reminders from anywhere by selecting "Schedule Payment Reminders" from the features and services menu in the My Account box on the left hand margin of our website.

Important: Payment Reminders only provide notification of a future payment. It will not make the payment for you. Please use Schedule Payments if you wish to schedule a payment.
