    Default over due meralco bill

    hello Muggers,

    just wondering if anyone here experienced paying overdue meralco bill. i happen to pay my bill 1 day overdue and i used BPI online to pay, no warning message and the amount has been deducted.. the question is.. did it really went thru? i check on meralco online and it shows it still on "collectibe" status.

    anyone here has the same experience?

    TIA

    ^^ i think it may take 4+ days overdue for the "disconnection notice" to get to you, then it may take a couple of days after that for the actual disconnection
    There are two things in life that you should do to be successful. 1) Do not share everything you know.

    From what I know, overdue meralco bill should be paid over the counter at a Meralco branch. I pay my meralco bill online using my HSBC acct... A couple of times, I tried paying my overdue bill, HSBC reversed my payment and it reflected only in my next statement. HTH.

    Agree with macster. Overdue meralco bills would be rejected by bpi express online. You have to pay it over the counter at meralco.

    ^ yes, wondering too. i use bpi-online to pay all my bills. once, i tried paying an overdue meralco bill online, i got a prompt that this should be settled over the counter. suggest you check with meralco, i'm sure that's less of a hassle compared to an actual disconnection.

    You're lucky if the payment was accepted. The last time that I checked, Meralco has this system that checks if the bills are beyond their due date. If it is, you cannot pay via other payment channels than the Meralco office alone. I tried to pay one time via Metrobank ATM, and was denied access to the facility. Best to call 16211 to confirm receipt of payment.

    I don't know if ot's applciable also to BPI but in HSBC, there's a disclaimer that:

    1.
    2. Payment of overdue bills will be rejected by the system. You may pay for your overdue
    bill in any Meralco branch.
