How bill pay works

Skip the hassle of writing checks and buying stamps to pay your bills. USUCU’s bill pay service is fast and free...saving you time and money! With online bill pay, you can send payments to almost any person, company or organization in the U.S. And for your convenience, you can schedule your recurring payments for monthly expenses such as loan payments or utility bills.

Payments are sent one of two ways—electronically or by paper checks. The majority of payments are delivered electronically. All other payments are made by paper checks that are mailed via the U.S. Postal Service.

Online bill pay helps guard against identity theft from lost or stolen checkbooks, bills and statements. It also increases your privacy because only you can access your account information, account numbers and payment history. As a result, you maintain tighter control of your account with real time access to your payments activity.
