Will I still get charged a late fee?

Will I still get charged a late fee?

I've been paying my bill little by little, but it's late. I will be able to pay the rest of it this week, but I'm afraid I might get a huge late fee.

I've never been late on any bill before, but I've been helping out my parents (dad's sick and can no longer work) and I've come up a bit short. If I've been paying on it, will they still suspend my account or charge a late fee?

If the balance is not paid in full by the due date, there is a late fee. Last I knew, it was $5. 

 

If you have an outstanding balance, your service can be suspended...getting service restored after suspension lead to large restoral fees. If it's already past your due date, call 611 from your wireless phone and talk with collections/accounts receivable and let them know what's going on. Usually (but not always) they can work with your payment ability to create an arrangement to prevent suspension. But you HAVE to call. I can't stress that enough!

Re: Will I still get charged a late fee?

Per the agreement, you can be charged a late fee if you make a late payment.  However, if you make a payment before the end of the billing cycle, you may or may not be charged a late fee.  Usually there is about 5 days between the due date and the end of the cycle.

It's 9 dollars now. Just a warning to you all.

Actually looking on my recent bill, it's $5 (In Washington State).  So it may vary by location.
