Paper has a way of piling up, so why not try going paperless?
For most Erie Insurance customers*, your online account and the ERIE mobile app can help you go green and reduce your carbon footprint. Now there is another option at hand: paperless invoicing. Here’s how (and why!) you register.
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 choose to receive paperless invoicing, which eliminates the paper invoice you currently receive. You will receive an email notifying you when your invoice is due with a link to the actual invoice.
Say goodbye to piles of paper on your desk. There are many advantages to digitizing your paper invoices.
- It helps the environment. Fewer paper statements reduce the demand for trees and lower air pollution in paper manufacturing.
- Access your information anytime, anywhere. Paperless means you can check your invoices at your desk or on holiday. A quick click and you can see your invoice history and pay your invoice.
- It̵7;s a time saver. No more sorting, printing, recycling, mailing or filing your insurance bill. It is easy to document things digitally.
- You can conquer the clutter. Whether you have a top-notch filing system or a shoebox filled with important documents, going paperless can free up space.
How to register for paperless invoicing with ERIE
Via your online account or ERIE’s mobile app, go to Settings and activate the new paperless billing option.
Don’t have an online account? No problem; it’s easy to register. Your online account provides instant access to information about your ERIE policy. Additionally, 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 do I receive notification of my invoice?
Check your email. ERIE will send a notification to the email address associated with your online account. The email contains a link to your invoice.
Can I opt out of receiving more paper documents?
Yes, you can. ERIE now offers the option to sign up for paperless documents for customers with personal lines (auto, home and umbrella) who have an online account. So what does this mean for you? No more “piles” of paper at home when your policy is renewed or changed. You will receive an email when a new document is available to view in your online account. It is also convenient because you can access your policy documents when you need them.
If you’re ready to make the switch, you can do so through your online account or the ERIE mobile app. To choose paperless documents, go to the Settings tab in your online account.
