Ameren Text and Email Alerts Program Terms & Conditions


The Ameren Alerts are a quick way to manage your account and keep current on your account activity.
Alerts are offered at no charge by Ameren. Your mobile carrier or service provider may bill you for text messages received and sent. Ameren is not responsible for these charges. Before using Ameren Alerts, check with your mobile carrier or service provider for text messaging costs and plans. Please see the Terms and Conditions for more information.
To avoid missing any of the Ameren Alert messages, update your contacts on the Ameren Alerts web page with your new information. (Delete the old contact and register the new one.)

If for some reason you forget to do this, any alerts returned to Ameren will be deleted - and the contact will be deleted from the Ameren Alert system.
The default subscriptions are the most common type of communications requested by customers at this time.

Ameren Illinois Customers are automatically signed up for Outage Alerts, Bill Reminders, Important Account Status Updates, Payment Confirmations, Energy Assistance Pledge Posted, and Start & Stop Service alerts.

Ameren Missouri customers are automatically signed up for the same alerts.
If you do not want one of the defaulted subscriptions, simply de-select the checkbox for that option, click the "Save Changes" button and you will no longer receive that alert.

When you subscribe to Outage Alerts, you'll receive alerts when power may be off in your area, including updates on estimated restoration time, the cause of the outage and power restoration confirmation.

We recommend five; however, the system allows you to have as many as you need.
Yes, you may register for text or email alerts on multiple accounts with the same contact information (phone number or email address).
A text alert can be deleted by using your text-enabled cell phone. Send STOP to AMEREN (263736).
