The quickest way to do this is to authorized NEC RD to do a credit score check (you will be charged $4 on your first bill)

Another option available is for you to request a payment reference letter from your previous provider that proves in the last 12 months of service with the provider you were not late paying your bill more than once and you were not disconnected for non-payment. Ask the provider to fax the letter to NEC RD at 361-387-2919.
