Deposits are determined by a personal credit check through Equifax Credit Information Services. There may be occasions when you might be required to come to a Jackson EMC office and make a deposit payment and/or provide positive photo identification before new service can be established.
Any deposits will be returned as a credit on your bill after you have had service with Jackson EMC for two years, if a good payment record has been maintained during the previous 12 months. If you move in less than two years, the deposit will be applied to the final bill. If a refund is due, a check will be mailed to your forwarding address.
