XPRESS BILL PAY IS HERE!


The Easiest Way to Pay Your Bill

Our new online bill payment option saves you time and gives you more flexibility in how you pay your bill.
If you have an internet connection and an e-mail address, you can now pay your bill online.  It’s fast, easy, and you no longer have to write a check each month or find a stamp when it’s time to send in your payment.

How It Works

We have partnered with Xpress Bill Pay, the premier provider for online bill payment systems.
When you sign up for online bill payment you get a unique password that you use to access your personal account at XpressBillPay.com.  Every month we’ll send you a reminder e-mail to let you know when your bill is online. Then, just long in through your Web browser and view your bill, which will look like a paper statement you’re familiar with.  Select payment type – credit card, debit card, or electronic funds transfer – enter the information, and you’re done!

It’s that easy, and it only takes you a few minutes each month.
