When do I get my deposit back?
The purpose of your utility deposit is to pay the final bill on the account. When your account is closed (not transferred to another address) the deposit is used to take care of as much of the final bill as it can. You are responsible for any balance due; if there is deposit left after the bill is paid you will be issued a refund check that will be mailed to the forwarding address you provided when you closed your account.
