So I recently wrote about how I had a missed insurance payment while traveling and how I got it resolved. I got the information set up in my ING account and now have it listed as a bill.

I set up my account to send out regular bill payments on a certain day of the month and I waited with bated breath to see what would happen.  Well this month the bill payment went out and I noticed that ING had sent out the payment as an electronic payment instead of a paper check.

I was a bit worried as I was not sure if the place accepted electronic payments, but I called and they said it was fine and it was correctly applied to my account.

I no longer have to worry about writing paper checks and I end up saving money on stamps as well since they did not provide prepaid envelopes to send in my payment. ?

I am relieved about this and I just wonder why I did not think of this in the first place. Anyway, better late than never right
