I am worried about forgetting to make a payment and then getting disconnected. How do I prevent this from happening? If you are concerned about forgetting to monitor your account or being unable to make a payment before dropping below $0, you can enroll your credit card in Automatic Payments. With this program, you sign up online to set your account to automatically deduct a payment from your credit card if your account falls below $25. You can choose from several payment amounts to refill your CPL Prepaid account balance.
