What Do You Need to Enroll?

  • Less than 10 minutes
  • Internet access
  • Your latest TDS bill
  • Banking Account or Credit Card information

Please note: enrolling in TDS ePay cancels delivery of your paper bill. It also cancels any automatic TDS bill payment programs you may be enrolled in, such as Sav-a-Check.

Attention Sav-A-Check Customers: Enrolling in TDS ePay automatically removes you from the Sav-A-Check bill payment program.
