Do you need help paying your bills? Is paper getting in the way? Don’t have a personal computer? NYC Aging’s Bill Payer Program helps older adults organize and pay their bills on time, while keeping your money safe.

This service scrutinizes enrollees bills for errors and fraud to make sure only the bills that are supposed to be paid, and not any fraudulent ones. Individuals will be assigned a personal account manager to help them enroll in the program and answer any questions they may have. Older adults do not need a personal computer to enroll.

A secure portal is used, where enrollees use a personal login information so they can see their bills and payments. If they wish, they can also receive monthly statements by mail, outlining all bills and payments for review. Payments are authorized from older adults existing checking account. No changes will need to be made to their current checking account.
