Q: What kind of browser do I need?
A: You will need a connection to the Internet and a web browser that supports 128-bit SSL encryption. Online Banking works with the most popular browser types, but please check the online banking terms and conditions for more specifics.
Q: Why does it say that my account is locked? And what do I do now?
A: As a security measure, and for your protection, accounts will lock for several reasons such as inactivity or the incorrect password being entered too many times in a row. If you are locked out, please please contact customer service during regular banking hours for additional assistance.
Q: What should I do if I think someone has my user name or password?
A: Immediately change your password in online banking. This feature can be accessed under the Options menu. Additionally, please contact the bank during business hours and ask to speak with customer service.
Q: Are there limits on the number of transfers I can make?
A Yes, depending on the type of account you have. Some accounts, such as checking accounts, have no limits on the number of transfers that can be made. However, savings accounts and money market deposit accounts, by federal regulation, have limits to the number of permissible transactions. More information is available by contacting the bank, or this information can be found in the disclosures provided at the time you opened your account.
- Do not use an obvious number (for example, 1234).
- Ensure no one is watching when you enter your information.
- Try to memorize your user name and password, rather than writing them down.
- Do not allow your internet browse to save your online passwords automatically.
- Do not share your user name or password with anyone.
- Change your password on a regular basis and don't use the password for other online services.
- Report any unusual account activity to us immediately.
- Do not provide personal information, including passwords, over the phone.
- Always log out of the system when you are finished reviewing your accounts.
- Never click on links from emails that ask you to update information, such as credit card information.
Q: Can business accounts and personal accounts be combined under the same online setup?
A: Not generally. Online setups are done on an individual basis, and businesses are considered to be a separate entity.
Bill Pay FAQ's
Q: What is Bill Pay?
A: Bill Pay is a convenient way to pay all of your bills online. You can set up future and repeat payments as well as check the status of your payments. Payments are made electronically (ACH) whenever possible. If the payee doesn’t accept electronic payments, a paper check is automatically prepared and mailed to them.
Q: How much does Bill Pay cost?
A: Bill Pay is free for customers in our Advantage, Rewards, Wallet accounts. Some account types that are no longer offered may be subject to a monthly fee for the service.
Q: When should I set up my payments to make sure they are paid on time?
A: The date you select using the calendar feature of bill pay should be on or slightly before the bill due date. Bill Pay will show you the first available payment date on the payment calendar. For check payments, you should allow a minimum of seven (7) business days before the due date.
Q: What if my payee says they have not received my payment?
A: If a payee notifies you that a payment has not posted, please call the online banking customer service department. We will investigate the payment in question and will work with you to resolve the issue.
Q: Do I need to contact my payees to tell them I am using Bill Pay?
A: No. Using the Bill Pay service will not change the way your payments are credited with the payee or how money is debited from your accounts.
Q: Can I stop bill payment from being processed?
A: You can cancel certain bill payments in Bill Pay if they have not reached a "processing" status. Please contact us if you need to amend or stop a bill payment, so that we can review all options available for the transaction.
Q: When are payments for Bill Pay processed?
A: Bill Pay payments are processed each day at 7:00 P.M. CST. Payments entered after that time or on a non-business day will be processed on the next available business day.
Q: How do I know if a bill will be paid electronically or by check?
A: The Bill Payment system will automatically determine the method of payment based on your prior history with Bill Pay and the terms and conditions we have established with the Biller.
Q: Will the memo field information be passed on to the payee?
A: Generally, yes, the information in the memo field is passed onto the payee. It is a good idea to include your account number with the payee in this field.
Q: What are the maximum and minimum payment amounts?
A: The maximum is the amount of funds available in your checking account that is used for the payment and the amount the biller will accept electronically (limits will vary by biller). The minimum payment amount is $1.00.
Q: When can I cancel my Bill Pay Service?
A: You may cancel your Bill Pay services at any time. However, you will be charged for the current month’s service during the next statement cycle. Please note that all scheduled payments will be deleted immediately upon cancelation of the Bill Pay service.
