Paying your bill in person is fast and easy with Western Union:
Visit wu.com or call 1-800-225-5227 to find a participating agent location. No need to fill out a form — Western Union is formless. Just bring your account number to the service counter, and tell the clerk the name of the company you wish to pay and the amount.
For First time users, you may be asked to give your “Phone Number, Address, and Date of Birth.” Once this information is obtained, it creates the sender profile. All future transactions will only require the phone number to access said profile, the payee (Utility Name), and your utility account number. You’ll receive an MTCN (Money Transfer Control Number) receipt to track your payment.

Do you constantly have to remind yourself to pay your electric bill? We'll remember to pay your bill with Lumbee River's Auto Pay/Bank Draft option.
Lumbee River EMC offers Auto Pay/Bank Draft to allow you to set it or forget it! You will continue to receive an electric bill each month. Lumbee River EMC will draft the amount of your bill from your bank account on the "DUE DATE" of the invoice.
To signup for Auto Pay: Access your account thru SmartHub, select the Billing & Payments option, then choose Pay Auto Accounts to sign up for Auto Pay/Bank Draft.
*Please note that your account must go through one billing cycle for Auto Pay/Bank draft to take effect
Stop by any of our locations to pay your bill. We accept cash, checks, debit cards, and Visa or MasterCard credit cards. Can't make it during our business hours? No problem. Each office is equipped with a drop box conveniently located by the drive-thru service window.

You will need to dial our toll-free payment line specifically designated for payments to make a payment over the phone. The toll-free telephone number is 844-827-4761. The reason for a separate payment line is to protect the data associated with your credit cards.
The Payment Card Industry (PCI) has developed a set of data security standards for all companies accepting credit/debit cards for payments. As thieves and hackers become more sophisticated, the way we do business must keep up with technological advances. Adopting these standards ensures compliance in preventing, detecting, and appropriately reacting to potential security incidents.
By moving to this more secure processing of payments through this separate phone number, you can be assured that LREMC is doing everything possible to ensure your payment information is safe and secure.
With each monthly billing, you will receive a courtesy envelope to mail your payment to us. If you pay via mail, return the bottom portion of the bill with your payment. Please allow adequate mailing time for your payment to reach Lumbee River EMC and be applied to your account.

Would it be easier to make daily, weekly or biweekly payments rather than one large payment each month? Think of FlexPay the same as you do putting gas in your car. You pay for it before you use it. You can purchase small amounts every few days or "fill up the tank."
Are you on a budget? Does your electric bill vary each month? Budget billing can help. Budget billing guarantees you no surprises when you receive your electric bill. With budget billing, you pay the same predetermined amount each month.
We average your last 12 months' bill to determine your monthly bill. However, your actual usage and dollar amount for the month, including taxes and other charges, will appear on each statement along with your account balance so that you will know the status of your account at all times.
Contact us. We'll review your account and help you determine if Budget Billing is right for you!
