Frequently Asked Questions about Bill Pay

Desktop FAQs

Bill Pay is a secure, convenient, free service that’s available in Online Banking. Here are the answers to some of the most common questions we get about Bill Pay:

How are payments processed?

  • Over 70% of payments are sent electronically. 
  • Cashier's Checks are mailed prior to the payment date and deduct from your account on the scheduled pay day.
  • Draft checks are also mailed prior to the payment date and clear your account similar to a personal check.

How do I manage bills and payees in Bill Pay?

In Online Banking, select the Transfers & Payments tab and then the sub-tab Bill Pay.

From here you can pay, manage your payees and view scheduled payments.

What should I do if my payee did not receive my Bill Pay payment?

Sometimes the payee may not credit your account immediately after receiving a payment. It may take a few days for the payee's payment system to show the credit to your account. Wait a few days after the scheduled payment date to see if it is credited to your account.

To verify the payment information is correct and was sent according to schedule:

  • Review your payee's information in Payment Center by clicking on the payee's name. The address and account number information will appear on the right side of the screen in the Payment Assistant section.
  • Locate your payment in Bill History and click View Detail to view the details of the payment.
  • If you schedule a same-day payment, the payee receives and acknowledges the payment on the current business day or the next business day, depending on the time of day when you enter your payment information. However, the payee's payment system may not credit the payment to your account until the next business day. If you want to verify the payment, you should wait a day or two before contacting the payee.
  • If you have questions at any time, please contact us at . Bill Pay assistance is also available 24/7 by calling .
