Available billing data as of November 2015 and December 2015

Effective November 2015, customers are now able to view their security deposit in VCSS, if one was paid. They are also able to query on closed receivables and closed collections; this information will be listed as separate entries in VCSS. Customers who have any outstanding receivables will also be able to query that information and view it as separate entries.

Posted billing statements for late payments were made available in VCSS in December 2015. Customers now have access to all payment history that has occurred since the transition to VCSS.
