Flexible Due Date

Flexible Due Date is a free service allowing you to schedule the due date of your DTE bill each month.

Program Highlights

Request a Day
By selecting the day your bill is due, it allows you to choose the best time for your budget.
Peace of Mind
Flexible Due Date gives added assurance to customers who are only paid once a month or on a fixed income.

How Flexible Due Date Works

Choose a monthly due date between 1 and 28 (dates are subject to availability). You may only change your due date once per year.

Once your date is confirmed, the due date printed on your bill will never be earlier than this date, but could be due up to five days after this date.

The date we read your meter and create your bill will change. Your advanced metering infrastructure or AMI/smart meter allows us to read your meter remotely, at any time to provide you the benefit of a flexible due date.

The first bill after you switch will reflect the new date. This bill may be higher or lower than normal due to the number of days in the billing period.
