Pepco's Pre-Authorized Transfer Program (PAT)
Now there's a way to pay your electric bill quickly, conveniently and effortlessly, without writing or mailing a check. Just sign up for Pepco's Pre-Authorized Transfer Program, our automatic bill payment service, and your electric bill will be paid automatically from your bank, savings and loan or credit union checking account each month. All Pepco customers with accounts in good standing are eligible.
No Stamps To Buy Here's how it works:
- You complete the enrollment form and fax or mail it to Pepco. We need this information to verify your account number and bank routing information.
- Once your enrollment is processed, each month, Pepco will send you a statement at least five days prior to the transfer. The statement will show the amount you owe, and your transfer date, which is your regularly scheduled bill due date.
- Then, unless we hear differently from you, the amount you owe will be automatically transferred from your bank account to Pepco on the payment due date. Your next month's statement will reflect the payment just as if you had written a check. It's that simple.
Responsive To Your Needs
If you ever need to suspend the transfer because of a cash emergency or for any other reason, just contact Pepco at least five business days prior to the transfer date. You can then pay your bill by cash or check. And, of course, if at anytime you wish to discontinue participation in PAT, just give us a call at (202) 833-7500.
No Checks To Mail!
Simply print, complete and sign the attached enrollment form and mail it to Pepco. If more convenient, simply fax the form to Pepco at (202) 872-3217. We'll send you a confirmation letter along with a helpful PAT brochure.
As a PAT participant, you'll save on postage and check writing costs. You'll enjoy the convenience and avoid the bother of having to remember to pay by a certain date. And just think--you may never have to write a check to Pepco again.
