Bill Payment Options

Online credit card or e-check payment - All you need to make an instant online payment is your Benton Municipal Utilities utility account number. There are two online bill payment provider options. The first is Official Payments at www.officialpayments.com. Begin by selecting “Local Payments.”  The second is Payment Service Network (PSN) at www.paymentservicenetwork.com. Begin by selecting “Start Your Payment.” PSN also allows customers to check their account balance online. Please note that a service fee does apply to make online payments. You can compare both options to determine which will suit you better.

Auto Pay/Direct Payment - You can have your utility bill automatically deducted from your bank account every month.  No fee applies. You can enroll by completing the Direct Payment Authorization form available below.
