How to Pay Overdue Meralco Bills?
Due to my miss in planning, I wasn’t able to retrieve my Meralco Bill when I went home to Iloilo last December so I wasn’t able to pay on time. The punishment for not being able to pay on time was that I lost the privilege of paying my bill online via BPI and I need to go to a payment center in order to settle it.
I did some research and found that a few bayad centers accepts overdue bills but I wanted to be sure so I went to a Meralco Business Center and settled it there (glad there was one nearby). Although the line was long, I was able to finish in less than an hour. If only those who pays in cheque follows the instructions given, then I believe it would have been faster for everyone.
Here’s what you need to do to pay your overdue bills.
- Head over to a Meralco Business Center and fall in line under payments
- If paying in cash, just give your bill and the cash.
- If paying in cheque, write your name, address, telephone and SIN # at the back of the cheque beforehand.
- Wait for a few seconds and walk out a happy person.
