Billing & Payment Information

We offer several convenient payment options:


Save time and money. Customers can sign up for our Auto Pay program, and your bill will be paid on time, every time, directly from your checking or savings account on the date it is due. No stamps required. You will still receive a copy of your bill before the due date, so you will have time to ask any questions before payment. Best of all, it’s totally free! To enroll in the program, log on to My H2O Online or contact our customer service center. Please note: This payment option is not offered to customers in Avalon.

New Jersey American has agreements with several authorized payment locations across the state. Please note, this list changes periodically. Customers are encouraged to call the location first, to ensure they still accept payments for New Jersey American Water. Please note these locations DO NOT accept payments by mail. 


If someone handles paying your bills, such as a relative, trustee or social service organization, we can send a copy of your bill, as well as any reminder, past-due and shut-off notices, to that third party. Contact our customer service center at 1-800-565-7292 for more information or visit My H2O Online.

Payment Assistance

Although our lives depend on an ample supply of tap water, many of us take water for granted. Unfortunately, there are many people and families who risk losing water service because they can’t pay their water bills. For customers who have fallen on difficult financial times, New Jersey American Water’s H2O Help to Others Program™ and Low Income Payment Programs are offered to provide assistance for customers who qualify.

At American Water, helping out where we can is at the core of who we are. For more information on both of these programs, click here

Payment Arrangements

If you cannot pay your bill by the due date, please contact our customer service center BEFORE the due date at 1.800.272.1325.

When you call, our customer service representatives will work with you on a plan to pay the balance of the bill over time. These payment arrangements require you to:

  • Pay at least 25 percent of your bill within 48 hours of your call.
  • Pay the rest of the bill, including any applicable late payment charge according to an agreed upon schedule, not to exceed 6 months.
  • Pay all future bills as they become due.

New Jersey American Water will create these payment arrangements only with customers who have not broken a similar agreement with us in the past twelve months.
