Ameren Alerts FAQ


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.

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.

These include Outage Alerts, Bill Reminders, Important Account Status Updates, Payment Confirmations, Energy Assistance Pledge Posted, and Start & Stop Service alerts. If you do not want one of the defaulted subscriptions, you can easily manage your alert preferences from the "Account Support" section of your Account Dashboard.

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.

You can also text OUT to AMEREN (263736) to report an outage or STAT to check the status of power at your address.
