Payment Due Dates
Your bill payment is due 14 days from the billing date. After these 14 days, your payment is considered overdue.
The date and the amount due are on the first page of your bill.
If you decide to pay by Direct Debit, the date the payment is due to be taken from your account is indicated on your bill.
What if I miss a Payment? / Unpaid Bills
Most of us have fallen behind on our bills at some point or other, so if you miss a payment (or simply forget to pay) don't worry - you won't be disconnected right away. Your bill is not considered overdue until 14 days after your bill is issued.
If you do fall behind on your payments, you will receive reminders from us by text, email, letter or via a phone call.
If we don't receive payment, or any communication from you, your services may be restricted. You can find this information on the first page of your bill.
You can call us at any time to discuss your options if you have concerns about clearing your bills on time.
If your services have been barred due to non-payment of bills, and we do not receive any communication from you, we will write to you informing you that your contract will be terminated. This is called a Notification of Termination.
If an amount due remains unpaid after the date specified in this notice, your account will be terminated and your line removed. We will continue to follow up on any outstanding balances after your account has been terminated
In order to have your service reconnected, you will need to clear the balance on your account. It can take up to 24hrs for your service to be reinstated after payment is made. The quickest reconnection method is paying over the phone by card. You can see if your payment was successful in your my eir account
If you have an overdue balance on your account, you will not be able to place new orders, upgrade your package or remove any services until that balance is cleared.
If your services are restricted, you will still be able to contact emergency services via 112 or 999.
