An easier, more secure option for paying bills.
Bill Pay is available to those with a GECU checking or HSA account enrolled in Online or Mobile Banking.
Access your bills with a single login and password. Don't worry about remembering numerous usernames and passwords to various biller sites. Enroll to receive eBills from your biller then log in to one, secure site and pay all your bills with a few clicks.
Manage your finances on the go. Make one-time or scheduled payments directly from our mobile app. Easily set up new billers and make payments wherever you are.
Never miss a payment. Avoid late payments (and potential fees) by setting up email reminders alerting you when bills are due. For recurring bills like your electric or cable bill, set up automatic payments or schedule specific payment amounts at regular intervals.
Control and modify payments as needed. Unlike auto debit or ACH payments where funds are automatically withdrawn from your account, with Bill Pay, you get the flexibility of determining how much you want to pay and when. You can modify a payment any time before it is processed.
Protect your identity with a reduced paper trail. Almost 85% of identity theft cases are due to lost checkbooks, payments lost in the mail, and paper statements along with stolen bills and payments.1 When you receive eBills and pay bills online, your payment information is protected by the same standards that secure your online account - so you know it's safe.

Bill Pay FAQs
Who can I pay using Bill Pay?
You can pay anyone you would normally pay by check or automatic debit, even if you don’t receive bills from the company or person you want to pay.
You can pay large companies and small companies, as well as individuals such as child care providers or family members. When you pay a bill, Bill Pay sends the payment electronically whenever possible. If the company or person cannot receive electronic payments, Bill Pay prints a check and sends it to the address you provide.
How much does it cost to pay my bills through Bill Pay?
Nothing. Bill Pay is free to GECU members who use Online Banking and have a GECU checking or HSA account. Fees may apply for rushed or expedited payments.
Are my payments guaranteed?
With the CheckFree Guarantee, you can be assured that your electronic payments are safe and reliable. When your payments are processed through Bill Pay, you are protected in the unlikely event of unauthorized transactions or processing delays.
How does Bill Pay work?
To pay your bills online, simply add the companies and people you want to pay. We use this information to make the payments for your bills. Next, sign up for eBills, if offered by the biller and then go to the Payment Center. The Pay Bills section lists all the companies and people you’ve added in Bill Pay. To pay a bill, simply enter a payment amount and the date when you want the company or person to receive your payment. You can also select this date from the calendar.
Tip: When you enter an amount, Bill Pay automatically displays the earliest date you can select for the company or person to receive the payment in the Pay Date box. You can either accept this date or change it to a later one.
Tip: The pay date is the date on which your payee will receive the payment. You can pay as many bills as you want at the same time from the Payment Center. You can schedule to pay a bill in advance, pay a bill just once, or set up recurring payments.
When does a biller receive my payment?
For most bills, we can deliver your payment the next business day. If we send the payment by check, it can take four business days for your biller to receive it.
When is the money for the payment withdrawn from my payment account?
If the payment is sent electronically, the money for the payment is withdrawn from your payment account on the pay date. If the company or person cannot receive electronic payments, Bill Pay prints a check and sends it to the billing address. For some checks, the money for the payment is withdrawn on the pay date. For others, the money is withdrawn when the company or person deposits or cashes the check. You can set up an alert in Online Banking
to be notified when a check clears.
What are automatic payments?
Automatic payments provide a means for automatically scheduling payments in Bill Pay based on the options you select. You can set up an automatic payment schedule to pay bills of a set amount at regular intervals. For example, you can schedule a payment at the first of each month to pay your mortgage or rent.
You can also automatically pay the amount due by the due date, even if it's not a fixed amount (i.e. Utilities, credit cards, etc.).
What is an electronic version of a bill?
An electronic version of a bill, which is also called an eBill, is a bill that you can view and pay online at the Payment Center. It typically contains the same information as a paper bill or statement.
You can set up auto payments for your eBill as well as alerts when eBills arrive to your account and are due.
How do electronic bills work with Bill Pay?
We can receive electronic bills from hundreds of companies nationwide. When you add a company that can send electronic bills, “Get eBill” will appear next to the biller name in the Pay Bills section of the Payment Center; click “Get eBill” to go to the Add an Electronic Version of My Bill page. Enter the information that your biller requires to set up your electronic billing service, and we send your request to the biller. Some billers let you select options to automatically pay your electronic bills. You can decide to always pay the amount due or set limits for automatically paying the bill. You can also decide to pay the bill on the due date or schedule the payment for the earliest date available after you receive the bill.
