Bill Pay

No more postage, fewer late fees, much less hassle. Paying your bills online is free, fast, and easy.

Pay bills in a flash

  • Schedule payments ahead of time
  • Get reminders when due dates are approaching
  • Nix writing checks and remembering multiple logins

Paying bills is a part of life. But there's no rule that requires you to spend hours on multiple websites to make online payments or on writing checks and stuffing envelopes. GECU's electronic Bill Pay,1 available in Online Banking and our mobile app,2 takes a task that can be time-consuming and cuts it down to size.

Convenience is the name of the game

Make one-time payments in a matter of minutes. Or, schedule recurring payments – such as utilities – months in advance. You can even set up alerts to remind you of payment deadlines so you’re always on top of things! In the end you’ll save money on postage and envelopes and help prevent identity theft by reducing your paper trail.

Bill Pay FAQs

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.

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.

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. 

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. 

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.

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. 

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.

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.

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.
