Providing our policyholders with an exceptional experience is at the heart of all we do here at Central. Our e-options make it easy for you to manage your insurance directly from your computer, phone, or tablet.
In this article, we’ll review what Central’s e-options include, how to get started using them, and how these tools can make your insurance experience easier than ever.
What are Central’s e-Options?
There are four main ways you can manage your account online with Central. The first and most important is your myCentral portal, which is a hub for all your personal and policy information. From within myCentral, you can report or check the status of a claim, access your insurance ID cards, request roadside assistance, and more.
Keep in Mind: myCentral is also the portal to your e-billing, e-policy, and Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) options.
The next e-option Central offers e-policy. E-policy allows you to easily access your current policy information, make changes or updates to your existing coverage, and more.
E-billing is the option to receive and manage your billing statements electronically. . Change your due date, verify your future bill schedule, examine your payment history, and more from within this tool. E-billing members can also sign up to have billing notifications sent right to their phone.
Finally, Central offers Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) for those looking for an easy and reliable payment method. When you sign up for EFT, payment is automatically withdrawn from your checking or savings account on the due date you choose. This option is a great choice for those looking to avoid service fees and ensures premiums are paid on time with no lapses in coverage.
