Agreement Disclosure - Bill Pay

Bill Pay Online Agreement and Disclosure Statement

This is the First National Bank’s Bill Pay Online Banking Service Agreement and disclosure. Each and all of the depositors are referred to as “you” and “your”. The First National Bank is referred to as “we,” “our,” and “us”. This online banking agreement contains the terms and conditions governing the online bill pay service. As used in this document, the term “agreement” means this document and the Bill Pay Online Application. These terms and conditions are in addition to those that apply to any accounts you have with us or any other services you obtain from us. First National Bank may amend or change this agreement and give you notice via regular mail or electronic mail, using the address that appears on your account records.

You acknowledge that you have received, understand and agree to the specific disclosures (Truth In Savings, Funds Availability, Electronic Funds Transfer, Deposit Account Agreement, and Your Information is Safe) that apply to each of your accounts with First National Bank. The disclosures were provided to you at the time you opened your accounts with us. The account disclosures continue to apply while this user agreement is in effect, even though they may be or have already been revised.

Security and Privacy

First National Bank understands how important privacy is to our customers. We have taken steps to insure your security and privacy for your personal and financial dealings with the bank.

Bill Pay Service

It is easy to pay bills online. Bill Pay Online allows you to pay bills electronically or by check. You can arrange this for any current, future and recurring bills from your checking account, up to the available balance of your account. In order to enroll in Bill Pay you must also be enrolled in Internet Banking. You may pay any merchant or individual through the online service that has a U.S. address and phone number. You may not make a payment of alimony, settlement of brokerage accounts, child support, taxes, and or any other governmental fees or court-directed payments through Bill Pay.

By furnishing us with the names of your payees (means the person or entity to whom you wish a bill payment be directed) or merchants and their addresses, you authorize us to follow the payment instructions that you provide through Online Banking. We will remit to the payee/merchant, as instructed by you, on the day (current or future) that you request. You authorize us to debit your checking account and remit funds to the Payee on your behalf.

While it is anticipated that most transactions will be processed and completed by the Payment Date, it is understood that due to circumstances beyond our control, particularly delay in handling and posting payments by slow responding Payees, some transactions may take a day or even a few days longer to be credited by your Payee to your Payee account.

We will use our best efforts to make all your payments properly. However, we shall incur no liability if we are unable to complete any payments initiated by you through Bill Pay because of any one or more of the following circumstances:


  • If, through no fault of ours, your Checking Account does not contain sufficient funds to complete the transaction or the transaction would exceed the credit limit of your Overdraft Protection, Savings to Checking and/or Bounce Protection accounts;
  • The date and/or time settings on your PC are incorrect;
  • Bill Pay or Online Services is not working properly and you know or have been advised by us about the problem before you execute the transaction;
  • The Payee mishandles or delays a payment sent by the processor;
  • The Payee is not a business Payee;
  • The Payee information necessary to complete the payment stored on your PC’s hard drive and/or First National Bank Internet Banking systems has been lost; or,
  • You have not provided us with the correct name, phone number or account information for the Payee, or you have not provided us with accurate personal information either during enrollment or on your Bill Payment Profile within Online Banking, or you have otherwise provided incomplete payment instructions.

Instructions for Setting up Payees & Payments

Payees: If you want to add a new “Payee,” first select the “Payee” tab located in the bill pay or speak to a service representative.

  • The Financial Institution reserves the right to refuse the designation of a “Payee” for any reason.

Payments: You may add a new payment to a “Payee” by accessing the service and entering the appropriate information. Most other additions, deletions, or changes can be made in writing or by using the service.

  • You may pay any “Payee” with-in the United States (including U.S. territories and APO’s / AEO’s).
  • The Financial Institution is not responsible for payments that cannot be made due to incomplete, incorrect, or outdated information.

The Bill Paying Process

Single Payments: A single payment will be processed on the business day (generally Monday through Friday, except certain holidays) that you designate as the payment’s processing date, provided the payment is submitted prior to the daily cut-off time on that date. The daily cut-off time, which is controlled by the Financial Institution, is currently 3pm EST.

A single payment submitted after the cut-off time on the designated process date will be processed on the next business day. If you designate a non-business date (generally weekends and certain holidays) as the payment’s processing date, the payment will be processed on the first business day following the designated processing date.

Recurring Payments: When a recurring payment is processed, it is automatically rescheduled by the system. Based upon your selected frequency settings for the payment, a processing date is calculated for the next occurrence of the payment. If the calculated processing date is a non-business date (generally weekends and certain holidays), it is adjusted based upon the following rules:


  • If the recurring payment’s “Pay Before” option is selected, the processing date for the new occurrence of the payment is adjusted to the first business date prior to the calculated processing date.
  • If the recurring payment’s “Pay After” option is selected, the processing date for the new occurrence of the payment is adjusted to the first business date after the calculated processing date.


Note: If your frequency settings for the recurring payment specify the 29th, 30th, or 31st as a particular day of the month for processing and that day does not exist in the month of the calculated processing date, then the last calendar day of that month is used as the calculated processing date.

Single and Recurring Payments Schedule

The system will calculate the Estimated Arrival Date of your payment. This is only an estimate, so please allow ample time for your payments to reach your “Payees”.

Bill Pay Fees

There is no cost to access or use Bill Pay.

Stop Payment Fee – $30.00

These fees may be amended from time to time. All other fees applicable to your accounts remain in effect.

Payments Schedule

All payments are made from your designated checking account. To schedule a payment, you must provide the name of your payee, the amount of your payment and the date or dates on which you want your payment to be scheduled. Although you can enter payment instructions through Bill Pay 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, excluding maintenance and other availability windows, payments will be processed only on business days. Any scheduled future payments may be made on a non-business day (weekend, holiday, etc.), but will be initiated on the next business day. If any recurring payments fall on a day which is not a business day in a particular month, the payment may be initiated on the prior business day. This processing sequence and timing must be considered in your planning when making bill payment requests.

It may take up to 8 business days for the U.S. Postal Service to deliver the check and up to 3 business days for electronic payments to your Payee/Merchant on the desired date. You will need to allow an appropriate amount of time for it to be delivered and posted to your account due to merchant posting issues. First National Bank will not be responsible for late fees, additional interest, and/or penalties for payments you’ve scheduled during any account grace periods that may not be received until after your grace period.

Stop, Change or Edit a Bill Pay Transaction

You have the right to stop or change any scheduled bill prior to 3:00 pm EST on the last business day before the payment date in the event the payment date is a non-business day (weekend, holiday, etc.).

Transfer Limitations

If your account is a savings or money market (HIFI) deposit account, federal law requires that an Account Holder may make no more than six (6) transfers and/or withdrawals during any one (1) calendar month or statement cycle (the period from one statement to the next), to another of your accounts with us or to a third party by means of a preauthorized transfer or automatic transfer. You are permitted to transfer from one of these accounts to a loan account that you have with us. No more than three (3) of the six (6) transfers may be made by check, draft, debit card, or similar order made by you and payable to third parties.

Login User ID and Password

Each authorized owner of an eligible Checking Account can access that account to pay bills if they have completed a Internet Banking or Bill Pay Application. Each owner will have a unique ID and a Password with which to access the Online Banking system. Each owner is responsible for transactions initiated by individuals with whom the Access ID and Password have been shared. In order to prevent unauthorized access to your accounts and to prevent unauthorized use of Online Services, you agree, by using Bill Pay, to keep confidential, and to not give or make available your User ID or Password, or other means to access your account(s) with anyone. This agreement will apply to each account owner, signatory or authorized signer.

First National Bank does not have a duty to monitor payments made through Bill Pay. If you are a business owner, and an authorized representative uses online banking to pay bills which are not yours, you assume the entire risk of loss. You also agree to indemnify and hold harmless First National Bank from any loss, liability and expenses arising out of or in any way connected with such use.
