How To Pay Bills in The Sims 4

If players want to keep electricity powering their houses and water flowing through their pipes, then paying bills is a necessity in The Sims 4.

While paying bills is rarely a desirable activity, it is something that must be done to retain access to one's utilities in The Sims 4. Similar to real life, having access to utilities, such as running water or electricity, is essential to keep one's Sims' satisfied with their living conditions. Nevertheless, such services from the city do not come for free, as players will receive a weekly bill that covers the cost needed to maintain their business or housing facilities in The Sims 4. If these bills are paid in a timely manner, the corresponding buildings will lose their electricity, followed by the loss of running water.


The traditional way to pay one's bills in The Sims 4 is by selecting a Sim and having them check the building's mailbox for letters. If the bills are included in the mail, a notification will appear, revealing how many Simoleons are needed to keep the utilities running. If a child was sent to do this action, they will naturally not have the authority to make the payment. On the other hand, they can bring the bills to an adult to pay the enclosed bill.
