Online Account Management Service
MyAccount allows you to access online services specific to your Southwest Gas account(s). Online services under the MyAccount umbrella include online billing and payment information/services, as well as other account-related information and analysis tools. Southwest Gas may add additional online services to MyAccount, as appropriate, in the future.
Southwest Gas reserves the right to modify or discontinue any or all services or features of MyAccount at any time, without notice, or to offer specific programs only to customers meeting applicable qualifications. Subject to satisfying the qualifications for a particular program, you may elect to use one or more of the features available without being obligated to use them all.
Specifically, by participating in MyAccount you have agreed that:
You are subject to these terms and conditions until such time that your MyAccount, including all its online services, is discontinued. By clicking the "Create MyAccount" button when registering for MyAccount, you are confirming that you accept these Terms and Conditions (including any future modifications thereof) as a pre-condition to access to MyAccount. When you meet the above requirements, you will receive an email message from Southwest Gas confirming your registration in MyAccount.
The unique email address and password (collectively, "Password") selected by you to access MyAccount must be held on a confidential basis. Anyone with knowledge of your Password can gain access to MyAccount and all the services available within the account. If you have forgotten or lost your Password, online services are available to assist you in resetting it. If you need assistance, contact Southwest Gas by email or by calling Customer Assistance at 1-877-860-6020, Monday through Friday 8:00AM to 5:00PM PT (excluding holidays). You are responsible for maintaining the Password against improper disclosure.

Automatic Payment Plan
Program Qualifications and Restrictions
Residential and Commercial customers are eligible for enrollment in Southwest Gas Automatic Payment Plan ("APP") if the following requirements are met:
You must have a current/valid U.S. bank account at a financial institution where the payment will be withdrawn.
Your Southwest Gas account must be an active account and your account must not have been removed from the APP by Southwest Gas in the past twelve (12) months.
Your Commitment to Us
It is your responsibility to:
Ensure there are sufficient funds available in your checking or savings account to meet each withdrawal on the due date. If there are insufficient funds in your account, your financial institution and Southwest Gas may charge you a fee and/or interest. You are solely responsible for paying any fee and/or interest charged by your financial institution or Southwest Gas. Check your account statement to verify that the amounts debited from your account are correct.
Advise us if the payment account is transferred or closed, or if the account details change no later than three (3) business days before the debit date.
Arrange an alternate payment method if you cancel the scheduled withdrawal.
On your due date, we will deduct your APP payment from the payment account you designate. Your billing statement will indicate that it is being paid through the APP when this service is activated. In the event that Southwest Gas makes a billing adjustment to the account, Southwest Gas will cancel the withdrawal and establish a new withdrawal for the amount and due date as indicated on the revised bill.
If two requests are returned for insufficient funds, you may be excluded from using the APP to make payment. If you need to update your checking or saving account information, you can do so online through MyAccount. However, to the extent this information requires updating, and such updates are not made prior to the applicable payment deadline (as discussed in detail above), all applicable additional charges, including, but not limited to, late fees, may be assessed. If the transaction is refused by your financial institution for any reason, including, but not limited to, insufficient funds, closed account, or unauthorized account, Southwest Gas will not be able to process your payment. Your Southwest Gas account may be subject to additional charges if your payment is rejected, reversed or refused by your financial institution.
To cancel an APP withdrawal, you will need to notify Southwest Gas at least three (3) business days before the transaction is scheduled to occur.
Participation in Southwest Gas's APP is completely optional. We reserve the right to discontinue accepting APP payments at any time, for any reason without prior notice. We may send notification of termination of APP anytime after the termination is effective. We also may temporarily discontinue accepting APP payments, within our sole discretion. Termination does not affect your rights and obligations for APP payments prior to termination.
These Terms and Conditions do not supercede, modify or in any way mitigate your obligation to be bound by and comply with the Southwest Gas MyAccount Terms and Conditions.
The Paperless Billing option requires an active Southwest Gas account number, a valid email address and to be logged into or create a "MyAccount". You may enroll in Paperless Billing at any time.
Bill delivery and presentment
Upon enrollment in Paperless Billing, one last paper bill may be presented. In addition to your paperless bills, disconnect, final, and special billings will be mailed.
Southwest Gas will use its best efforts to present all of your paperless bills promptly. Southwest Gas will send email notification to the email address listed on your account. It is your sole responsibility to ensure that this information is accurate. In the event you do not receive notification, it is your responsibility to log into MyAccount and check on your paperless bills and account balance(s).
Payment of Bills
It is your sole responsibility to pay your Southwest Gas bill on time to avoid late fees, collection activity or disconnection of service.
Termination/Cancellation of Paperless Billing
You may terminate Paperless Billing at anytime by logging into MyAccount. After you terminate Paperless Billing, future bills will be mailed to your current address on file with Southwest Gas. Please make sure to pay your final paperless bill by the due date. You can check your current account balance at https://myaccount.swgas.com/.
Cancellation of Paperless Billing
Southwest Gas reserves the right to cancel the presentment of Paperless Billing at any time.
Non-Delivery of Paperless Billing(s)
If emails are returned as undeliverable to Southwest Gas, Southwest Gas reserves the right to terminate you from Paperless Billing and return to sending you a paper bill. You may enroll again at any time after correcting any email address errors through MyAccount.
These Terms and Condition do not alter your liability or obligations that currently exist between you and Southwest Gas concerning your utility usage, and other products and services. Neither termination nor cancellation shall affect your liability or obligations under these Terms and Conditions.
Service fees and additional charges
You are responsible for any and all telephone access fees and/or Internet service fees that may be assessed by your telephone and/or Internet service provider.
It is your sole responsibility to ensure that the contact information in your user profile is current and accurate. This includes, but is not limited to; name, address, phone number(s) and email address(es). Changes can be made either within the application or by contacting Customer Assistance.
You agree that the information you provide to Southwest Gas can go through a verification process.
Questions and Disputes

If there are insufficient funds in your account, your financial institution and Southwest Gas may charge you a fee and/or interest. You are solely responsible for paying any fee and/or interest charged by your financial institution or Southwest Gas. Check your bank account statement to verify that the amounts debited from your account are correct.

Requests for refunds due to overpayment should be directed to your financial institution which may charge a fee associated with the refund request.
Payments made Monday through Friday before 5 p.m. Pacific Time will post to your account the same day. Payments made after 5 p.m., or on weekends or holidays, will post to your account on the next business day. (Business days are Monday through Friday, except for banking holidays.) Please ensure that your payment is made prior to 5 p.m. on or before the due date of the bill. You are solely responsible for making payments prior to the due date, and you are solely responsible for any late fees charged by Southwest Gas for payments not made timely. Late fees for any payments made using Online Payment are the same as the late fees charged for mailed payments. Online Payment is designed to be available seven days a week, 24 hours a day, and Southwest Gas will endeavor to update account balance and activity information daily. However, Southwest Gas shall not be liable for any inability to access Online Payment, or for Southwest Gas' failure to update any information, for whatever reason.
Southwest Gas does not charge you a convenience fee for using Online Payment. However, your financial institution may charge you fees related to your scheduled payment, including transaction fees or fees for attempting payments without sufficient funds. If the transaction is refused by your financial institution for any reason, including, but not limited to, insufficient funds, closed account, or unauthorized account, Southwest Gas will not be able to process your payment. Your Southwest Gas account may be subject to additional charges if your payment is rejected, reversed or refused by your financial institution.
If you save your banking information for reoccurring use in MyAccount, and need to update your checking or saving account information, you can do so online through MyAccount. However, to the extent this information requires updating, and such updates are not made prior to the applicable payment deadline (as discussed in detail above), all applicable additional charges, including, but not limited to, late fees, may be assessed.
Unauthorized or Disputed Payments
If you believe that someone has made an unauthorized payment through Online Payment without your permission, contact your financial institution immediately. You are solely responsible for any unauthorized payments, although your financial institution may provide some form of fraud protection.
In case of disputes or questions about your Online Payment, contact Southwest Gas by email or by calling Customer Assistance at 1-877-860-6020, Monday through Friday 8:00AM to 5:00PM PT (excluding holidays).
