or after moving, a closing bill isn't forwarded.

When I closed my fathers telephone account, I was told that there might be a charge for three months of call forwarding. I received a bill for the last month without the forwarding charge. I never received an additional bill. The estate is closed, and mail forwarding expires after a year. If they decided at some time to try to charge it, I would have no way of knowing.

That's a good reason to have electronic statements and online bill pay. You don't have to worry about closing bills being forwarded.
