IV. Bill Payment

Through First Federal Bank’s Online Banking or First Federal Bank’s Business Online Banking service you may enroll in the online Bill Payment system. The Bill Payment service allows you to schedule payments through your online banking system for current, future and recurring bills from your checking account. You must designate a specific checking account as your bill payment account. Your bill payment transactions will be processed for the Bank by CheckFree Corporation (“CheckFree”), a major provider of electronic banking transaction processing services.

 

Available Payment Services

In addition to standard bill payment services, other payment types are available to assist you with easy access to payments.  Account-to-Account (A2A) transfer is also offered which enables you to transfer funds to or from a First Federal Bank account to an external account you own at another financial institution.   This convenient service is available to bill payment customers for an additional fee.

Individuals may also use the Person to Person (P2P) Payments Service to pay people securely.  The P2P service, PopMoney, allows you to send or receive money from individuals directly to your checking or savings account.  Additional fees may apply for use of this service.

For detailed information regarding the services offered by CheckFree review the “Terms and Conditions” located within the Bill Payment web site.

 

Restrictions

We will not permit you to use a money market checking or savings account as your Bill Payment Account, because Federal regulations require us to limit either by contract or in practice the number of certain types of transfers from these types of deposit accounts. Under these regulations, you are limited to six preauthorized electronic funds transfers and telephone transfers, including First Federal Bank’s Online Banking or First Federal Bank’s Business Online banking transactions, checks, and point-of-sale transactions per month. Of these six transactions, you are limited to no more than three transactions per month by check or point-of-sale. Each funds transfer or payment through First Federal Bank’s Online Banking service from your savings or money market deposit account is counted as one of the six limited transfers you are permitted each month.

Accountholders that require two (2) signatures for withdrawal purposes will be unable to access the personal online banking Bill Payment service.

 

Eligibility

You may pay any merchant or individual approved for payment by First Federal Bank for payment through the online Bill Payment service. We will be unable to process any payments to federal, state, or local tax agencies online.  Bill Payments are available only to payees with an U.S. mailing address.

 

Bill Pay Procedure

By furnishing us with the names of your payees (merchants and/or individuals) and their address, email address, mobile phone number, or by completing the setup of external accounts using deposit verification, you give us authorization to follow the payment instructions, which you provide to us via First Federal Bank’s Online Banking or First Federal Bank’s Business Online Banking service for these payees. When we receive a payment instruction for the current date or a future date, we will remit the funds to the payee on your behalf from the funds in your selected account on the day you have instructed them to be sent (Payment Date). We are not obligated to pay funds from your account(s) if the account balance is insufficient to cover the payment, unless your account has overdraft protection in an amount sufficient to cover the payment. Funds for all bill payments, whether paid electronically or by check, will be withdrawn on the day the payment is scheduled to be sent to the payee.

 

Stop Payments

You have the right to stop or change any scheduled payment. You must cancel the payment no later than 5:00 p.m. EST of the day prior to the Payment Date by canceling the payment online. We shall not be liable to you due to a stop payment request if your order to do so is not presented prior to processing the payment. Once processing of the payment has begun, you can no longer stop payment.

 

Note

Any payments made with Bill Payment require sufficient time for your payee to credit your account properly. To avoid incurring a finance charge or other charge, you must schedule a payment sufficiently in advance of the due date of your payment. In the event that the payee for your scheduled payment does not accept payments via the electronic system, your payment should be made by you mailing a paper check. Paper payment requires a longer delivery time. Payments by paper check should be scheduled seven (7) business days prior to the due date.

 

Liability

If you fail to schedule your payment according to the recommended time frame, First Federal Bank will not be responsible for any late fees or finance charges. We shall not be responsible for any charges imposed or any other action taken by a payee resulting from a payment that you have not scheduled properly, including any applicable finance charges or late fees.  First Federal Bank will not be responsible for processing incorrect information, which is supplied by you through the bill payment system, or for failure of the payment to process due to incorrect information. In addition, we will not be liable if any third party through whom any bill payment is made fails to properly transmit the payment to the intended payee. We will also not be liable if there are insufficient funds in your designated payment account or credit availability in your overdraft protection plan, if a legal order prohibits us from conducting withdrawals to the payment account, if there is a hold on the account for uncollected funds or any other valid reason for hold, if the payment account is frozen or closed, or if any part of the electronic funds transfer system is not working properly. We will not be liable for indirect, special or consequential damages due to the use of Bill Payment.

 

Research Requests

To inquire about an online Bill Payment, please contact a First Federal Bank Online Banking or First Federal Bank’s Business Online banking Representative at one of our locations.

 

Termination

First Federal Bank reserves the right to terminate your use of Bill Payment at any time.  If for any reason you should wish to terminate your use of First Federal Bank’s Bill Payment System, we recommend that you cancel all future bill payment and transfers at the same time you cancel your account, either by deleting the payments yourself, or by calling a First Federal Bank Representative at one of our locations. This will insure that future payments and transfers made by you will not be duplicated. We will automatically delete all outstanding payments and transfers (both one-time and recurring) once we have been notified that your service has been terminated. We will continue to maintain your accounts unless you notify us otherwise.

Bill Payment Fees

The Bill Payment service will be provided to all online banking users at no additional monthly charge for those who wish to enroll.  Business online banking users can enroll in the Bill Payment service for a nominal monthly fee.  Additional products within the Bill Payment service may include other fees not associated with the monthly fee.  These additional fees will be disclosed during usage of the product.

 

Joint Account Holders

Each Bill Payment account may consist of either one individual account holder, or multiple (joint) account holders. Each account holder needs a unique First Federal Bank Online Banking or First Federal Bank’s Business Online Banking password. The terms of this online banking agreement apply to all account holders enrolled in the online Bill Payment program. In order to have a joint membership, all members must be joint signers on the checking account linked to Bill Payment. Joint members share the same payee list and are subject to the joint tenant rules contained in the Account Agreement and Signature Card for the checking account. Either account owner may close the bill payment service.

 

V. General

Changes to Fees, Charges and Other Terms

We reserve the right to change the fees, charges or other terms outlined in this agreement. We will notify you 30 days prior to implementation of changes, either by written notice or e-mail, and will also update this agreement, if the changes to this agreement are more restrictive than those stated in the agreement, or increase your responsibility for unauthorized transactions. In the event that a change is necessary to ensure the security of the online system, an immediate change may be necessary, and we will notify you within 30 days after the change is made by electronic or written notice. You may choose to accept or decline changes by continuing or discontinuing the services to which the changes relate. We reserve the option to waive, reduce or reverse charges or fees in individual situations. Changes to fees applicable to specific accounts are governed by the applicable Account Disclosure.

 

Disclosure of Account Information

You authorize First Federal Bank and any affiliates to disclose to third parties, agents, and affiliates, such as independent auditors, consultants or attorneys, information you have provided or that we or our affiliates have obtained about your accounts and the transfers you make:

  • To comply with government agency requests or court orders
  • To verify the existence and condition of your account to a third party, such as a credit bureau or merchant
  • To provide services relating to your account or to offer other products and services
  • To other entities if you give us permission

 

Consumer Rights and Responsibilities

In addition to this Agreement, you agree to be bound by and comply with the Account Agreement and Account Disclosure, the rules and regulations of the electronic transfer system, and state and federal laws and regulations.

You, the consumer, are responsible for keeping your password and account data confidential. We are entitled to act on transaction instructions received using your password, and you agree that the use of your password will have the same effect as your signature, authorizing the transaction(s). If you authorize other persons to use your password in any manner, your authorization will be considered unlimited in amount and manner until you have notified us in writing that you have revoked the authorization, changed your password, and that you are responsible for any transactions made by such persons until such time as we receive, and have time to act upon the notification that transfers by that person, or instructions regarding your accounts, are no longer authorized.

The Bank reserves the right to terminate or modify this agreement and modify your access to First Federal Bank’s Online Banking or First Federal Bank’s Business Online banking service in whole or in part, at any time.

The Bank may assign certain of its rights and responsibilities under this Agreement to independent contractors or other third parties.

 

Unauthorized Transactions

You must notify us immediately if you suspect that another person has improperly obtained use of your Online Banking or Business Online password. You must also notify us if someone has transferred or may transfer money from your bank account without permission, or if you suspect any fraudulent activity related to your account. You should reveal your account number only to legitimate entities for purposes you authorize, such as automatic payments to your insurance company. To notify us, call a First Federal Bank Representative at one of our locations.

Federal law requires that if you believe your personal online password has been lost, stolen or compromised and you tell us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft, you can lose no more than $50.00 if someone used your online password without your permission.

Please tell us AT ONCE if you believe your personal password has been lost or stolen. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. If you do not notify us promptly, it is possible that you could lose all the money in your account, plus any maximum overdraft line of credit. To notify us, call a First Federal Bank Representative at one of our locations.  If you do NOT tell us within two (2) business days after you learn of the loss or theft, and we could have stopped someone from taking money without your permission had you told us, you could lose as much as $500.00.

If your statement shows withdrawals, transfers or purchases that you did not make or authorize, please notify us at once. If you do not notify us within sixty (60) days after the paper or online statement was sent to you, and we could have stopped someone from taking money if you had told us in time, you may not get back any money lost after the sixty (60) days. If extenuating circumstances, such as a confirmed extended trip or hospital stay, kept you from telling us, the time periods in this section will be extended.

 

Electronic Funds Transfer Error Resolution

In case of errors or questions about your personal electronic transfers, call or write us at the telephone number or address listed in this agreement, as soon as you can, if you think your statement or receipt is wrong or if you need more information about a transfer listed on the statement or receipt. We must hear from you no later than 60 days after we sent the FIRST statement on which the problem or error appeared.

  • Tell us your name and account number (if any).
  • Describe the error or the transfer you are unsure about, and explain as clearly as you can why you believe it is an error or why you need more information.
  • Tell us the dollar amount of the suspected error.

If you tell us orally, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within 10 business days.

We will determine whether an error occurred within 10 business days after we hear from you and will correct any error promptly. If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 days to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within 10 business days for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have the use of the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within 10 business days, we may not credit your account. Your account is considered a new account for the first 30 days after the first deposit is made, unless each of you already has an established account with us before this account is opened.

We will tell you the results within three business days after completing our investigation. If we decide that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation.  You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.

The Electronic Funds Transfer Act (“EFT Act”) is only applicable to consumers and commercial account holders are not entitled to the rights provided under the EFT Act.
