General Billing Questions
Once a policy is bound, we mail invoices no later than 19 days prior to the due date; however, you may sign up for electronic billing to receive your invoice sooner versus mail delivery.
It is convenient, saves time and allows you to receive bills anywhere at any time. Plus, it helps the environment.
Paying online with an electronic check (EFT) from your bank account (checking or savings subject to a $125,000 transaction limit) or with a credit/debit card (Visa, Mastercard and Discover are accepted subject to a $25,000 transaction limit) gives you the flexibility to pay how and when you want. It saves you the trouble from writing and mailing a check. In addition, for a faster payment experience, you may choose to store your information for future use.
For your convenience, all invoices are sent with a self-addressed envelope. You can also mail or overnight payments directly to: Millers Mutual, 3815 TecPort Drive, Suite 200, Harrisburg, PA 17111. Please write your account or policy number on your check or include the invoice payment slip. We are unable to accept hand-delivered payments. The most efficient way to make a payment is to pay online.

We listened! Our agents and insureds have asked for a true 12-month payment plan for quite some time. We anticipate this being a positive change in the eyes of the vast majority of all our customers.
The current “monthly” payment plan consists of 9 payments. The first payment is 20% down, and 8 subsequent installments of 10% each. The new “monthly” payment plan “12 Pay” will be a true monthly plan, with 12 equal installments.
Policies which are on our current “monthly” plan which is 20% down and 8 subsequent installments of 10% each, will be automatically converted to the true monthly payment plan “12 Pay” upon renewal effective 10/01/21 and after.
Payment due dates are based on the effective date of your policy and are unable to be changed. Installment plans can be changed, subject to minimum premium requirements and underwriter approval. Please submit these requests to your agent or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes, however, paying less than the total minimum payment amount due by the due date, as shown on your invoice, may result in a Notice of Cancellation being issued and a late fee being assessed.
A Notice of Cancellation will be issued and a Late Fee of $10 will be assessed if the minimum payment amount due is not received within 5 calendar days after the due date; after that time self-service electronic payments will not be processed. If a Notice of Cancellation is issued, please contact your agent for assistance.
Please contact your agent for assistance with a cancelled policy. A $10 Late Fee will apply, and a $15 Reinstatement Fee may apply.
If your check or electronic payment request is returned to us, a $35 Return Item Fee will be applied, and other fees may be applicable. An additional installment fee may also result from unpaid fees if invoiced separately. There will be a $4.95 Convenience Fee per credit/debit card transaction required by our payment processor. However, there is no Convenience Fee associated with electronic check (EFT) transactions.
A non-refundable fee added to a payment amount to cover various costs associated with billing and accepting your credit/debit card payment. There will be a $4.95 Convenience Fee per credit/debit card transaction required by our payment processor.
If I change my policy in the middle of the policy term or billing cycle, how will it affect my current bill?
If you make a change to your policy during the billing cycle (adding or deleting coverage), you should still pay the minimum payment amount due, as displayed on your current invoice. Any necessary premium adjustments will be reflected on your next invoice. If changes to your policy result in a credit balance for the remainder of the policy term, Millers Mutual will issue you a refund check.
Millers Mutual issues a separate account invoice for every policy you maintain with us. If you have two policies (i.e., a businessowners policy and an umbrella policy), you will receive two separate account invoices. Registering online for electronic billing and payment options through Online Bill Pay will allow the linking of two or more accounts you maintain with us for combined notification and payment options.
Account Linking means that you can link multiple accounts and view and pay all your open bills with a single transaction. When registering bills under the same email address, you are given the option to link the related accounts within the service.
Multiple first email notifications scheduled for the same day, including for different bill types, are grouped into one email rather than sent separately. Payment receipts are sent individually. Editing account information such as changing an email or password will go across all linked accounts, however, changing settings such as AutoPay or Paperless is only for the accessed account

All of your scheduled payments are listed in this menu with the option to either “View Detail” or “Delete” the scheduled payment.

Why does the reference number on my payment receipt differ from the reference number received from my bank?
The reference number on your payment receipt is an internal reference number. The reference number received from your bank is the ACH network trace number. We are able to research and locate your payment using either number when you call or email a Billing Department representative during normal support hours.
Using the Online Bill Pay System
You can securely save your banking information in a Payment Profile at the time you are making your payment or using Payment Profile menu. You can create multiple payment profiles to be accessed with your Sign In ID if your payments could be made from more than one bank account; however, an individual payment can only access one payment profile. Use the Payment Profile tab to manage payment profiles.
For example, account number 0000001998 can be paid using Payment Profile 1 and account number 0000002003 can be paid using Payment Profile 2 in two separate payment transactions.
The Sign In ID / Username is the email address associated with your account(s).
Click on “Forgot Your Password?” at the bottom of the sign in screen. You will need your account number and email address to retrieve your password. For a forgotten password, a temporary password will be emailed to the email address on file. If you’re unable to locate this information, you may call a Billing Department representative during normal support hours and after verifying your identity, they will be able to assist you.
Your password will be locked if you enter an incorrect password 3 times. The system will notify you when the lock will be removed so you can enter the correct password. Your password needs to be reset if you do not remember the correct password.
Simply sign in your Online Bill Pay account and change your online billing information under the My Profile tab. You need to contact your agent or a Billing Department representative during normal support hours to complete a change of your billing mailing address.
Go to the My Account menu and check the email address on file. When you change the email address, an email will be sent to both the old and the new email addresses confirming the change.
Advanced Features—AutoPay, Paperless and Pay by Text

This is required based on the ACH (Automated Clearing House) rules from NACHA (National Automated Clearing House Association). If you do not accept the Terms and Conditions agreement, you will not be permitted to pay online via electronic check (EFT).
The AutoPay date will not appear on the home page under Upcoming Scheduled Payments. However, when on the Scheduled Payments page, AutoPay will show.
Scheduled payments are individual payments that are scheduled for a specific date prior to the bill due date. The date of a scheduled payment can be changed as long as it is adjusted before the date scheduled.
