The Okeechobee Utility Authority is pleased to be able to offer you the convenience of making secured on-line payments, automated payments-by-phone and up-to-date account information. You will be prompted to setup a user account which will require the house number and account number. The account number must be entered as a six digit account number followed by a dash and three zeros. You must add one or more zeros to the front of your account number to make the six digits and add the dash and 3 zeros (012345-000 or 001234-000). There is a charge of $4.00 for each transaction.
Please be advised that making an on-line payment or payment by phone does not immediately change any status related to your account. Payments made after 4:45 PM will be credited to the next OUA business day. If today is your due date, a payment made after 8:00 PM will accrue a penalty. Making your payment on line or by phone will not prevent penalty or shut-off if made on the same day these events are scheduled. If your bill is scheduled for penalty or shut-off on the day you wish to pay please call the office to make your payment. If your service is already shut off DO NOT make your payment on-line or by automated phone as these payment features do not initiate a re-connection; please call the office to receive your updated balance and to ensure that your payment is received and your service is restored.

We have been made aware that some Okeechobee Utility Authority customers have been targeted by scammers claiming to represent us.
Scammers are calling customers claiming to be collecting on late bills. They may even falsify their caller ID information to make it appear as though the call is coming from a local telephone number or even the OUA.
