How do I sign up for Auto Pay automatic payments?
Please fill out the direct debit form and mail it back to us. Please note that it may take up to one billing cycle for us to process your request. Once Auto Pay has been set up, you will stop receiving invoices.
Will I receive a paper statement in the mail verifying that I signed up for Auto Pay?
No, we will not send out verification. But once the first payment is processed (which could take up to one billing cycle), you will stop getting paper invoices and begin having your payment automatically withdrawn/charged every month.
Will I continue to receive a monthly statement confirming that the Lifeline Service has been paid?
No. Once you have fully converted from paying by check to Auto Pay, you can confirm your payments to Lifeline by reviewing your monthly credit card or bank statement.
If I’m enrolled in Auto Pay, can I view my transaction history on the Lifeline website?
No. At this time you are not able to view your transaction history on the Lifetime website.
On which day will my payments be deducted?
Lifeline will auto-withdraw each month on your existing bill date. The actual date it hits your credit card statement or applicable bank account is dependent upon your institution’s rules and practices.
If I need to cancel the Lifeline Service, will you also stop my automatic payments?
Once the service is canceled, your automatic payments will stop immediately. Please note that if we receive a signal from your Lifeline equipment after you have notified us to cancel, your services will be reactivated and your applicable Auto Pay deduction will resume on the same monthly bill cycle.
Can I use my own online banking as a method of automatic payment to pay for the Lifeline Service?
Yes. However, this method of payment still requires us to generate and mail an invoice, which will prompt an invoice fee.
How do I get a copy of an invoice or a printout of my account history?
Please use the Contact us form and select ‘Billing,’ and you will hear back from one of our specialists within 1-2 business days.
