To sign up, simply log in to Online Banking and select the Bill Pay tab. A welcome screen will appear for first users. Read and accept the explanation of service to continue. Then, enter your information and click Submit to enroll.
To add a new payee, type the name of the person or company in the “Need to pay someone new?” field at the top of the main bill pay page and click Add.
Fill out the form, click the Add payee button and you are ready to make a payment.
Note: If you don't have any payees set up, or just a few, we will suggest some common payees at the bottom of the page. If you see your payee there, click their name to begin the add payee process.
When adding a payee (or trying to edit your payee later), don't be alarmed if we do not ask you for an address to which to send your payment. This just means that we have a relationship with this payee where we either pay them electronically, or the payee asked us to send payments to an address that might not match the address they give you on your bill.
Due to legal requirements, we limit the ability to make certain types of payments. Payments to payees outside of the United States are prohibited and may not be issued under any circumstances. In addition, the following payments are discouraged, but may be scheduled at your own risk:
- tax payments to the Internal Revenue Service or any state or other government agency
- court-ordered payments, such as alimony or child support
- payments to insurance companies
We will not notify you if you attempt to make any of these payments and we will not be liable for these prohibited or discouraged payments.
Tell us the day you want your payment sent and we take care of the rest.
Use our calendar widget when scheduling payments to assist in understanding when a payment can be delivered. Available dates will be displayed in blue. Unavailable dates including weekends, holidays, or a date that would not allow us to deliver the payment in time are grayed out and not selectable.
The answer depends on a few factors:
Electronic payments: If we make your payment electronically, your account is debited on the day you scheduled that it be sent.
Check payments: The funds will be debited from your account one (1) to two (2) days after the send on date.
Note: To determine if a payment will be paid electronically or by check, locate the payment in the "Scheduled payments" section of the main page and click the edit icon. How a payment is scheduled to be made, electronic or check, will display in the pop-up box next to "Type."
An eBill is an electronic copy of your paper bill that you can view anytime from within the Bill Pay service.
eBills are a secure and convenient way to keep all of your bills in one place. You will be notified when an eBill arrives and when it is due so you never have a late payment.
The last 24 months of payment history and eBills are available online for you to view. If for some reason you need payment information dating back past 24 months, give us a call and we will help you retrieve that information.
We send many types of notifications and alerts to you via email to keep you informed and up to date regarding your payments. Some alerts are system generated and cannot be turned off, but there are many others you can choose to "turn on" or "turn off."
