Automatic Payment Plan - Checking or Savings
SIGN UP TODAY AND START SAVING!
With the Automatic Bill Payment Plan, you won't have to spend time writing or mailing checks, or driving and waiting in line. Actually, paying your utility bill won't take any time at all!
You'll save the cost of your checks, stamps, and, by not driving to a bill payment location, you'll save on gasoline. Plus, you'll never have late charges. Your bill will be paid on time, even when you're on vacation.
HOW THE PLAN WORKS.
The amount due will be paid automatically from your checking or savings account to Thumb Electric Cooperative on the 22nd of each month. The payment will be listed on your monthly checking or savings account statement. Applications received after the 15th of each month will be processed the following month.
Please call Thumb Electric Cooperative at 989-658-8571 or 1-800-327-0166 with your meter reading the same day each month. You may also report your meter reading 24-hours a day through TEC's automated telephone system by pressing a "2" after you dial the above listed telephone number or by accessing TEC's home page on the internet at http://www.tecmi.coop.
