Q: How do I know if a payee is electronic or check?

Q: Can I stop a payment?

A: Yes and No, you may place a stop payment on any check payment that you have issued that has not cleared the account.

A: Yes, you may set up multiple payments to the same payee.


Q: Are Confirmation Numbers Important?

For your convenience, Bill Payer Confirmation Numbers for scheduled payments are found in the “Pending” section.  Just click on “edit” next to the payment.  You will see the confirmation number listed amongst the payment details.  You may also find the confirmation number on payments that have already processed.  In the “history” section, click on “view” next to a payment.  You will see the confirmation number listed in the payment timeline associated to that payment.  They will help us resolve any questions and expedite any request you may have about your Bill Payer transactions.

A:  The second person has to be added to the Bill Payer area first.  Go to “My Account” and click the link under the “Personal Information” section.  Add the secondary account holder’s name.  This will allow the secondary account holder to use the “Chat Now” or call into the 800 number for assistance with Bill Payer.


Q: Can I send a payment to an individual electronically?

A:  Yes.  When adding a payee, you can Pay a Person which will allow you three options to pay that person.

  • Email or Text - Send funds electronically if you do not have the other person’s account information. 
  • Direct Deposit - Send funds electronically if you do have the other person’s account information.
