For Bill Payments by Check
Like many companies, Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) processes check payments electronically. Not only does this method streamline payment processing, but it also offers customers greater security, safety and privacy. With electronic check conversion, your bank account will be debited in the amount of your check, as early as the same day we receive payment. The transaction will appear on your bank statement as an electronic funds transfer.
Benefits of electronic check processing:
- With faster check clearing, you will have an up-to-date picture of your account balance.
- Information is more secure because checks will not be physically transported to various locations.
What about your original check?
Your original check will be destroyed and it will not be returned to your bank. We will retain a copy of your check for seven years. Should you ever require a copy of it, simply give us a call at 1-877-238-0092.
