Paper has a way of piling up, so why not try going paperless?
For most Erie Insurance personal lines customers*, your online account and the ERIE mobile app can help you go green and reduce your carbon footprint. Now, there’s another option at your fingertips: paperless billing. Here’s how (and why!) to sign up.
Why Make the Switch?
In 2019, the United States Postal Service delivered more than 142 billion pieces of mail. That adds up to more than 34 million trees (and let’s not even get into the gallons of gas burned to deliver).
As an ERIE customer, you can opt in for paperless billing, which eliminates the paper invoice you currently receive. You’ll get an email notifying you when your bill is due with a link to the actual invoice.
Say goodbye to stacks of paper on your desk. There are many benefits to turning your paper invoices digital.
- It helps the environment. Fewer paper statements lessen the demand for trees and lower air pollution made during paper production.
- Access your information anytime, anywhere. Paperless means you can check your invoices at your desk or on vacation. A quick click and you can view your invoice history and pay your bill.
- It’s a time saver. No more sorting, printing, recycling, mailing or filing your insurance bill. It’s easy to document things digitally.
- You can conquer the clutter. Whether you have a top-notch filing system or a shoebox filled with essential documents, going paperless can free up some space.
How to Sign Up for Paperless Billing with ERIE
Through your online account or ERIE’s mobile app, go to Settings and turn on the new paperless billing option.
Don’t have an online account? No problem; it’s easy to register. Your online account offers immediate access to details about your ERIE policy. Plus, you can pay your bill, access your insurance ID card (not available in New York), check your claim status and contact your ERIE agent.
How Will I Get Notified of My Invoice?
Check your email. ERIE will send a message to the email address associated with your online account. The email will include a link to your invoice.
Can I Opt Out of Receiving More Paper Documents?
Yes, you can. ERIE now offers the option to enroll in paperless documents for personal lines customers (auto, home and umbrella) who have an online account. So what does this mean for you? No more “stacks” of paper at home when your policy renews or is amended. You’ll receive an email notification when a new document is available to view in your online account. It’s also convenient since you can access your policy documents whenever you need them.
If you’re ready to make the switch, you can do so via your online account or ERIE mobile app. To opt into paperless documents, go to the Settings tab in your online account.
