It is no secret that delays within the United States Postal Service system have created issues for individuals and businesses alike. We recognize that Pekin Insurance billing has been impacted by these shipping delays which can lead to a domino effect of other issues. We know this can be extremely stressful for you, and we want to alleviate that stress as much as possible. We have a simple solution: paperless billing and electronic payments!
While we know some policyholders are committed to sending checks and receiving invoices by mail, we are encouraging everyone to consider utilizing our paperless billing and electronic payment options as an alternative during these uncertain times.
What is paperless billing?
Shipping delays have made receiving your invoice by mail unreliable. Signing up for paperless billing means your invoice will be in your inbox 18 days before your payment is due. All you have to do is contact your Pekin Insurance Agent and they will take care of setting up paperless billing for you.
What are my electronic payment options?
