When will my bills get paid?

Follow your billerís instructions to select the best date to make your payment, in order to ensure that your payment arrives before the due date.

After Establishing Bill Pay

What if my bill amount changes?

If you've established One-Time Bill Pay, you will see the new bill amount before you pay. If you sign up for Automatic Bill Pay, you will pre-select one of the following options following your billerís instructions:
1) Pay the full amount of your bill each month even if it changes. Your biller is responsible for notifying you of the varying amount at least 10 days prior to your payment date.
2) Pay a fixed amount above the anticipated charges and be credited for overpayment.

What if I donít have enough money in my Prepaid account to cover my Bill Pay?

It is your responsibility to make sure there are sufficient funds in your U.S. Bank Prepaid account prior to the date of payment. Your Automatic Bill Payment will be rejected if you donít have enough funds in your U.S. Bank Prepaid account to cover the amount of the transaction. You will need to add money to your Prepaid account or find a different way to pay.

How do I stop or discontinue Automatic Bill Payment?

Contact billers directly to cancel or discontinue any scheduled Automatic Bill Payment. Some billers require advance notice to discontinue automatic payments, so allow additional time for any changes to your payment service. You may also contact U.S. Bank at the number on the back of your card to ensure that automatic payments to your biller are stopped in the future.

What if there is a payment discrepancy or I have other payment questions?

Please contact the biller directly to settle payment discrepancies or for other payment questions.

What if there is an error in processing of your payment?

Contact U.S. Bank at the number on the back of your card if there are errors in the processing of your payment.

What if my U.S. Bank card is updated, lost or stolen?

Immediately report a lost or stolen card to U.S. Bank. To avoid service interruption on Automatic Bill Payment, provide billers with your new U.S. Bank card information.

Note: If your next payment date occurs before you receive and activate your new U.S. Bank Prepaid card, you may need to provide an alternate form of payment in order to avoid missing payment due date.

Remember, Visa's and MasterCard's Zero Liability Policies protect you against unauthorized transactions processed by Visa or MasterCard. You must call the number of the back of your Card immediately to report any unauthorized use.

Will I still receive a paper bill by mail?

Yes, most billers will continue to send you a duplicate of your bill by mail. You do not need to pay the bill twice. If you wish to stop receiving paper bills, contact the biller directly.
