MYTH: It isn’t easy to pay your bills online
In most cases, managing your bills online is actually easier than making payments through the mail. Some companies give you the option to set up recurring payments for bills you receive regularly — such as your mortgage, car payment or insurance premium. For bills like these, you can usually sign up to have payments made automatically each month through your checking account or with a credit, debit or prepaid card.** Plus, you’ll save the hassle and cost of postage, checks and money orders.
**This option is available only if credit/debit card payment is permitted by insurance regulations in the owner’s state of residence.
