Explore Payment Options Built to Fit Your Needs
We understand that sometimes you’re faced with unexpected expenses and could use more time or some assistance to pay your bill. JEA has bill pay solutions and utility payment assistance for families and individuals struggling financially.
JEA considers the following before granting a payment extension or arrangement: customer's payment history, length of time as a JEA customer, past-due amount, any active payment plans and/or payment arrangements, age of past-due amount, timeliness of prior payments, JEA credit score (read more), bankruptcy status, evidence of tampering, and evidence of fraud.
If you need a little more time to pay your bill, you can apply for an extension online*. Our self-serve system will let you know if you qualify and give you a new due date, if approved.
If you don’t have an online account, you can register for a jea.com account now.
JEA also offers payment arrangements, allowing customers to pay their balance over a series of monthly installments. The installment amount is then added to future monthly bills. Visit our self-service system to find out if you're eligible, determine
the required down payment amount, and apply online.
Before you begin, check out our Payment Arrangement FAQs.
Get Assistance from Community Resources
In some cases, an extension or arrangement may not offer the financial relief you need. If you are facing a financial dilemma, you can also request assistance through additional resources in our community.
