New Jersey Natural Gas Takes Action to Temporarily Close Walk-In Payment Locations, Waive Late Payment Fees for Customers

03/16/2020 - For Immediate Release

Wall, NJ, March 16, 2020 – New Jersey Natural Gas (NJNG) today announced that it will temporarily close its walk-in payment services for customers in Asbury Park, Wall, Lakewood and Rockaway, effective Tuesday, March 17, 2020, and waive late payment fees for at least the next 30 days (through April 15, 2020) for customers as part of the precautionary health and safety measures being taken in response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). 

Customers who pay their bills using in-person payment options are encouraged to use other payment options, including:

  • Online bill payment at
  • Over the phone by calling 800-221-0051

The payment centers’ closure to the public will remain in effect indefinitely - subject to an evaluation of changing circumstances and guidance from the government and public health entities. The following locations are subject to the closure:

633 Lake Avenue, Asbury Park, NJ

1415 Wyckoff Road, Wall, NJ

Lakewood Industrial Park
