I received my bill this month and the payment is due the same day as usual but the bill came much later than usual. Can I get more time to pay?

Under the law, a credit card issuer must establish procedures which are designed to ensure that statements are mailed to cardholders at least 21 days before a payment is due. 

However, sometimes there may be a delay in the delivery of mail, resulting in your statement arriving later than usual. You should call your card issuer to see if you can make special arrangements for this month.
