All online payments can be canceled before they are processed (5 or more business days prior to the requested due date). Once the payment has been processed, additional modifications are not possible.
How do I know if a payment has been sent?
When you pay bills online, the service automatically creates a record of your payments that you can view at any time. This allows you to check the status of your payment and always have a general account of where you are.
How far in advance can I schedule a payment?
You can schedule a payment up to one year in advance of the payment due date. Do not forget to allow five business days in between the scheduled payment date and the due date. A good example of when you might schedule a payment that far in advance could be to pay annual dues to an organization or association, or to send a birthday or anniversary check to someone.
How is the payment sent to my Payee/Biller?
You will not always know if your payment is sent electronically or by paper check. While many payments will be made electronically, some Payees/Billers cannot receive electronic payments (such as individuals). Those Payees/Billers will be sent payments by paper check.
How many days does it take for my payment to reach the Payee/Biller?
Most transactions will be processed five (5) Business Days before your selected Scheduled Payment Date. It is understood that, due to circumstances beyond our control, even once they are received, some transactions may take a day or even a few days longer to be credited by your Payee/Biller to your account with them.
What about payments I make every month for the same amount?
Easiest of all: establish a recurring payment. A recurring payment must be made at specified intervals (i.e., weekly, biweekly, semi-monthly, every 4 weeks, monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or yearly) for the same amount each occurrence. Set the payment frequency and the amount you wish to pay and, however you set it, your payments will be made as indicated. All you have to do is deposit the money to cover the payments. Set it and forget it!
What do I do if my Payee/Biller never received my payment?
Sometimes a company may not credit your account immediately after they receive a payment. If the payment is not credited after two days, call the company’s customer service line. If the problem isn’t resolved, you can send us a payment inquiry on payments in Activity. We will contact the company on your behalf in an attempt to resolve the problem.
What do I do with the part of the invoice or bill that I usually mail back to the Payee/Biller with my payment? Doesn't the vendor need that to process my payment?
You do not need to do anything with that portion. Bill Payment will provide all of the necessary information to the Payee/Biller with each payment.
When is the money for my payments taken out of my account?
If the payment is sent electronically, the money is withdrawn from your account one business day after processing begins. If the company or person cannot receive electronic payments, we print a check and mail it to the address you provide.
For some checks, the money is withdrawn one business day after processing begins. For others, the money is withdrawn when the company or person deposits or cashes the check.
Without a check stub or a canceled check, how can I prove that I made a payment?
One of the advantages of paying your bills using Bill Payment is that there are generally far fewer opportunities for errors to occur. However, in the event that you do need to provide proof of payment, there are many different tracking systems in place. For example, your financial statement will reflect debits to your account, and include the name of each Payee/Biller.
