Foolproof Tips For an Enjoyable Thanksgiving


Telpay will be closed for Thanksgiving on October 10th 2016, and no electronic payments will be processed. We believe that everyone should be able to enjoy a stress-free holiday, so we have created the following advice.

Steps to Enjoy the Thanksgiving Long Weekend:

  1. Plan your payments in advance, to avoid any surprises.
  2. Check our Holiday Schedule to be sure on funding deadlines.
  3. Double check someone is bringing pie.
  4. Relax, and enjoy spending time with loved ones.

Hopefully, this will help you spend more time with family and less time worrying about payment deadlines.
