Jeff Davis Bank Bill Pay service allows you to schedule your bill payments automatically through Jeff Davis Bank Online Banking. You can schedule, at your option, the payment of current, future and recurring bills from your checking account at Jeff Davis Bank. The Bank will debit your account, ON THE DATE YOU SPECIFY , and send by mail a check to your payee the next business day. The details of restrictions, your responsibilities and Jeff Davis Bank's responsibilities are outlined in detail below.
You must have a checking account with Jeff Davis Bank to use bill pay. If "two signatures" or more are required to withdraw funds from your checking account, all signers on the account are prohibited from using bill pay.
There is no limit to the number of bill payments that you may authorize. However, the types of payees of your payments are limited and exclude the types indicated in the notice below. If you set up Pay to a prohibited payee we will not be liable for any fees or charges incurred as a result of the prohibited payee transaction(s).
NOTICE OF PROHIBITED PAYEES:
- Payment to federal, state or local taxes.
- Court, local or state government directed payments.
- Payments to persons or entities outside of the United States.
By initiating a Bill Pay scheduled transaction and furnishing us with the names of your payees/merchants and their addresses, you authorize us to follow the payment instruction to these payees/merchants that you provide us via Jeff Davis Bank Online Banking. When we receive a payment instruction for a current or future date we will remit the funds to the payee on your behalf from the funds in your selected checking account on the day you have instructed the payment to be sent ("Payment Date"). The amount you indicate for payment is charged against your account's "Available Balance". If your account does not have "Sufficient Funds" in the available balance, the payment will not be processed. Our system will attempt to process the payment for seven (7) consecutive business days. A written notice, informing you of the insufficient funds status, will be sent to you after the second day's payment attempt and after the seventh day's payment attempt. After the seventh attempt, the scheduled payment will be cancelled. In this event we will also not be liable for fees or charges incurred.
Funds for all bill payments (whether these payments are made by us electronically or mailed by check) will be withdrawn from your account's "Available Balance" ON THE DAY that the payment is scheduled to be sent to the payee.
Your Available Balance is the balance according to our funds availability schedule of processing your deposits. You must be certain that there are adequate available funds in your account on the date your bill payment is scheduled.
The account to be charged against a bill payment must have enough money (sufficient funds) to cover the charge on the day the payment is scheduled.
Any payments made with Jeff Davis Bank Bill Pay require sufficient time for your payee to receive the payment and credit your account properly. To avoid incurring a finance charge with your payee, you must schedule a payment sufficiently in advance of the due date of your payment. When you schedule payments: YOU MUST SCHEDULE THE PAYMENT AT LEAST SEVEN (7) FULL BUSINESS DAYS PRIOR TO THE DATE THE PAYMENT IS DUE AT YOUR PAYEE. We recommend seven (7) to ten (10) days for most vendors. Our experience with large national companies (ex: credit card, mortgage) is that they take even longer to process. Please allow ample time in order to prevent any late fees or penalties.
Example: Mr. Thibodeaux has a monthly telephone service payment due on the 15th of each month. He knows that the minimum advance time to schedule a bill payment is at least 7 and up to 10 business days prior to the due date. Mr. Thibodeaux's telephone service billing address is in Louisiana so he schedules his payment for the 6th of the month (7 business days in advance of the due date). He also has a credit card payment due on the 20th of each month. This credit card company is a national company with an out of state billing address. Therefore, he schedules his payment for the 6th of the month (10 business days in advance of the due date). This way he is allowing ample time for processing and mailing.
You have the right to stop or change any scheduled payment. You must contact us no later than 2:00 PM (Central Standard Time) on the preceding day for which the applicable payment is scheduled. Calling on the day of a scheduled payment is too late.
If you have scheduled a bill payment in a timely manner (as described above) to an accepted payee and the payment is not paid on time, or in the correct amount, Jeff Davis Bank will bear responsibility for late charges subject to the eight (8) exceptions stated below.
It is the policy of Jeff Davis Bank to put forth our best efforts to make sure all your payments are processed accurately and timely. However, Jeff Davis Bank shall incur no liability if it is unable to complete any payments initiated by you via Online Banking because of the existence of one or more of the following circumstances:
The fee for using Bill Pay is $4.00 per month for up to 15 transactions and $0.40 for each additional transaction. Your account will be charged the scheduled fee monthly*.
*The Bill Pay fee will be charged to your account on the last business day of the month. This fee will be charged each month regardless of your bill payment scheduling activity. The Bill Pay fee will continue even if you do not use Bill Pay once you have established the service. If you decide to stop using the service, you must notify us to cancel your bill payment monthly fee via email or see the Communicating With Us and Email section above.
The Bill Pay fee is accessed on a per user basis. In regards to joint accounts, each registered Bill Pay user will be charged the monthly fee.
The Jeff Davis Bank Online Banking Agreement definition of "You" means each signer on an account. The terms of the Agreement extend to all signers on the account(s) you are accessing on Online Banking. The same applies to the Bill Payment responsibilities. Each Bill Pay member can consist of single or joint signers of an account. Joint owners (members) share the same payee list (when using Bill Pay), and are subject to the joint tenancy rules contained in the "Account Terms and Conditions" disclosure agreement for that checking account. Any account owner may close the Jeff Davis Bank Bill Pay service and any owner may authorize transfers to or from the joint account.
Each member (signer on account) is assigned a unique (individual) Jeff Davis Bank Online Banking password. Since joint signers on an account share the responsibilities with all signers on the account, the terms and conditions of this Agreement apply to all signers.
Passwords are unique to each user accessing Online Banking. For joint and multiple signer accounts, each signer is assigned a unique access ID and password and is responsible for the confidentiality of their individual access ID and password. Access IDs and Passwords must never be compromised or shared with any other person or signer on an account.
