You are responsible for ensuring that the information you give regarding your bills and payees is complete and accurate. You need to make sure you have sufficient funds in your account when payment is initiated. To ensure that your payments arrive on time, please make sure you schedule Bill Pay at least 7-10 days before “Due Date”. Also, review your account transaction history to be sure your account was charged for that Bill Pay transaction on the date you anticipated.
What if the Payee says they have not received my payment?
As a general rule, you should allow 7-10 business days for a Payee to process your payment. If payment has not been processed within 14 business days please contact us at 641-648-2544 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will work to resolve the issue on your behalf with the third party processor.
