I currently receive a Vintage Security statement. How will my billing change?

Your regularly scheduled bills will be sent to you by Guardian Protection (look for the purple shield on your new statement!). Your future bills will continue to be sent on the first of each month, just as they were with Vintage.  All bills from April 1 and beyond will be accessible in your online Guardian account.

If you enrolled previously in Annual payments with Vintage Security and have paid into the future, we won’t bill until you after the period for which you already paid has ended.

Customers can view their statement online at any time by logging into your online Guardian account. Here you can also view additional information about your statement. Click “Billing”, and then click “Statements”. Your statements will begin to be archived in your online Guardian account as of the April 1, 2024 billing.  Previous Vintage statements will not appear.

If you are already enrolled in a Vintage automatic payment plan:

You don’t need to do anything. You will be automatically enrolled in Guardian’s AutoPay service and continue to enjoy the convenience of automatic payments.

Just as with Vintage Security, your account will be debited on the first of each month. You will not receive advance notice of the debit as you did previously, but on the first of each month you will receive notice that the debit has occurred and can review payment history in your online Guardian account. A paper statement will not be mailed.

If you currently receive a paper bill via the U.S. Postal Service:

Your new bill will be mailed on the first of the month with a due date of the 16th, following your established billing schedule. Please mail your payment to the new address: Guardian Protection | P.O. Box 37751 | Philadelphia, PA | 19101-5501. You will see the address in the bottom right corner of your statement.

Save a check and postage! Consider using your online Guardian account to pay your bill or, for even more convenience, sign up for AutoPay which includes an emailed summary of your account charges and payments.

Read our quick guide to understand your new statement here or watch this video.


Understanding Your Billing Statement

I mailed my last payment to the Vintage Security office. Will this payment be sent to Guardian?

If you mailed a previous payment to Vintage Security, rest assured, it will be forwarded to Guardian’s office. Please note, there may be a slightly longer processing time for this payment.

Can I set up automatic payments (AutoPay)?

You bet! We offer automatic recurring payments (AutoPay) to help you save time and money each month. You can enroll in AutoPay or manage your automatic payments by logging into your online Guardian account.

To learn how to set up AutoPay, read step-by-step instructions here or watch this quick video!

Setting Up AutoPay

Can I mail in my payment?

If you would like to send your payment in the mail, please ensure your customer number is listed on your payment to ensure a proper payment application. Checks can be sent to the remittance address shown in the bottom right corner of side one of your billing statement.  You can save postage by instead making an online payment at any time here. Additionally, for your convenience, we offer several payment options, such as payment through secure text message, automatic payments (AutoPay) and more. Payments and payment method information can be managed anytime by logging into your online Guardian account.
