What is My Communications?
My Communications is a notification service that enables NJNG customers to receive service and payment alerts to their cell phones and e-mail addresses. *Please note that standard message and data rates may apply through your cell phone carrier.

How do I register for My Communications?
Login to My Account and select "My Communications" from the left navigation menu. On that page, you will find:
- Manage My Contacts where you can designate up to three e-mail addresses and three mobile phone numbers to receive alerts.
- Manage My Communications where you can choose the alerts you want to receive and the associated e-mail addresses or text numbers for these alerts. Be sure to select the account you wish to manage if you have multiple accounts.
Immediately after you register for My Communications and enroll to receive alert notifications, you will receive a confirmation request to help prevent problems with undeliverable and/or unsolicited messages. If you do not respond within 24 hours, your enrollment request will be canceled and you will have to start the process from the beginning.
How do I opt out of receiving alerts?
You can opt out of receiving alerts in a number of ways:
Through My Account
The account holder can log in to My Account and select "My Communications" from the left navigation menu. Click on “Manage My Communications” and for each alert from which you would like to unsubscribe, uncheck the box next to the mobile phone number or e-mail. If you would like to unsubscribe all contacts from a particular alert, click on “Unsubscribe all contacts from this alert” at the bottom of the alert box.
For SMS Text Messages
From the phone you wish to opt out of receiving either a single alert or all alerts, text the corresponding code below to 80399.
Payment Reminder - STOPPR
Late Payment Reminder - STOPLP
Payment Posted - STOPPP
Appointment Reminder - STOPAR
Change to Budget Amount - STOPBC
Temporary Service Interruptions - STOPSI
Season Turn On/Turn Off Reminder - STOPST
Stop all alerts - STOP
If you would like to opt out of receiving some, but not all, alerts, you must send a text message for each alert from which you want to opt out. You cannot opt out of multiple alerts in one text message unless you are opting out of all alerts.
For example, if you are subscribed to Payment Reminder, Payment Posted and Change to Budget Amount, and wish to unsubscribe from both Payment Reminder and Change to Budget Amount, you need to send two separate texts. Text STOPPR to 80399 to stop receiving payment reminders and text STOPBC to unsubscribe from receiving alerts indicating there was a change to your budget amount.
Open the e-mail message you received and click the unsubscribe link at the bottom. If you are subscribed to only one alert, you will be unsubscribed. If you are subscribed to multiple alerts, you will be directed to a page that will allow you to manage your preferences.
How much does it cost?
NJNG offers this service at no additional charge to its customers. However, normal text messaging and data rates may apply. Check with your mobile phone service provider for text message rates and plans. NJNG is not responsible for these charges.
What if my mobile phone number changes?
Before changing your mobile phone number, text STOP to opt out of alerts. You can also visit njng.com and log in to My Account. Select “My Communications” then “Manage My Contacts” to delete that phone number from your preferences. Once your mobile phone number changes, register your new mobile phone number at “Manage My Contacts.”
Can my spouse and I both get alerts about our home's NJNG account on each of our phones?

I have multiple accounts. Can I receive alerts for more than one account?
