HOW TO SET UP PAYEES/PAYMENTS
TO ADD A NEW PAYEE, USE ”Add a Payee” WITHIN STC OnLine BillPay OR SPEAK TO A SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE. You may add a new fixed payment to a Payee by accessing the Service and entering the appropriate information. Most other additions, deletions, or changes can be made by using the Service. By providing the names and account information of Payees, you authorize the Bank and its third party service providers to provide the bill payment service and to follow the payment instructions received through the bill payment service. In order to process payments more efficiently and effectively, the bill payment service may edit or alter payment data or data formats in accordance with Payee directives, although the Bank is not responsible for editing the information you enter. When a payment instruction is entered, you authorize the bill payment service to debit your deposit account and remit funds on your behalf. The Bank, through the bill payment service, will use its best efforts to make your payments properly. However, the Bank and its service providers shall incur no liability if the bill payment service is unable to complete any payments initiated by you because of the existence of any one or more of the following circumstances:
1 – If, through no fault of the bill payment service, your deposit account does not contain sufficient funds to complete the transaction or the transaction would exceed the credit limit of your overdraft protection;
2 – If the bill payment service is not working properly and you know or have been advised about the malfunction before you execute the transaction;
3 – If you have not provided the correct payment information or the correct name, address, phone number or account information for the Payee;
4 – If circumstances beyond the control of the Bank or the bill payment service (including without limitation fire, flood, external interference, postal service delays, etc.) prevent the proper execution of the transaction; and/or
5 – If the Payee you designate mishandles or delays processing a payment sent through the bill payment service.
The Bank reserves the right to refuse the designation of a Payee for any reason. You may pay any Payee within the United States (including U.S. territories and APO’s / AEO’s), subject to the section entitled “Prohibited Payments” below. The following types of payments through the bill payment service may be scheduled, but are strongly discouraged and are at your own risk: tax payments; payments for stock purchases; court ordered payments; payments associated with purchases of real property, annuities or lottery contracts, lay-away systems, or transactions to finance or refinance debts funded by a credit card; payments involving credit repair or debt settlement services; payments for the sale of items before the seller has control or possession of the item; payments associated with the following “money service business” activities: the sale of traveler’s checks or money orders, currency dealers or exchanges or check cashing. Except as otherwise specified by Regulation E (see Regulation E disclosure) the Bank shall not be liable for any claims, damages, losses, or late fees in connection with these types of payments. Further, the Bank has no obligation to research or resolve any claim resulting from this type of payment.
The Bank is not responsible for payments that cannot be made due to incomplete, incorrect, or outdated information. We advise you to review your payee information before you schedule a payment.
WHEN PAYMENTS SHOULD BE SCHEDULED
FOR ‘ELECTRONIC’ PAYMENTS, YOU MUST ALLOW A MINIMUM OF THREE (3) BUSINESS DAYS FOR PAYMENT TO REACH YOUR PAYEEFOR ‘CHECK’ PAYMENTS, THE NUMBER OF DAYS TO ALLOW FOR PAYMENTS TO REACH YOUR PAYEE DEPENDS ON THE LOCATION OF THE PAYEE. USE THE FOLLOWING RECOMMENDATIONS TO ENSURE YOUR PAYMENT IS RECEIVED ON TIME.
- PAYEES LOCATED IN CENTRAL OR EASTERN U.S., ALLOW A MINIMUM OF FIVE (5) BUSINESS DAYS;
- MIDWEST, ALLOW A MINIMUM OF SEVEN (7) BUSINESS DAYS;
- WEST COAST AND HAWAII, ALLOW A MINIMUM OF EIGHT (8) BUSINESS DAYS.
Bill payments can be changed or canceled, provided you access the Bill Payment service prior to the cut-off time on the business day before the business day the bill payment is to be processed.
Due to circumstances beyond the control of the service, particularly delays in handling and posting payments by the payee, some transactions may take a few days longer to be credited by the payee to your account.
You agree to have available and collected funds on deposit in the account you designate in amounts sufficient to pay for all bill payments requested, as well as, any other payment obligations you have to the Bank. The Bank reserves the right, without liability, to reject or reverse a bill payment if you fail to comply with this requirement or any other terms of this agreement. If you do not have sufficient funds in the Account and the Bank has not exercised its right to reverse or reject a bill payment, you agree to pay for such payment obligations on demand. You further agree that the Bank, at its option, may charge any of your accounts with the Bank to cover such payment obligations. The Bank reserves the right to change the cut-off time. You will receive notice if the cut-off time changes.
The Bank, in its discretion, may set limits on the dollar amount of payments and/or transfers the number of payments and/or transfers that may be made through the bill payment service, including without limitation daily, weekly, monthly, and per transfer limits.
THE BILL PAYMENT PROCESS
A single payment will be processed on the business day (generally Monday through Friday, except certain holidays) that you designate as the payment’s process 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 Bank, is currently 2:00 PM EST. A single payment submitted after the cut-off time on the designated process date will be processed on the following business day. If you designate a non-business date (generally weekends and certain holidays) as the payment’s process date, the payment will be processed on the first business day following the designated process date.
When a recurring payment is processed, it is automatically rescheduled by the system. Based upon your selected frequency settings for the payment, a process date is calculated for the next occurrence of the payment. If the calculated process 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 Backward” option is selected, the process date for the new occurrence of the payment is adjusted to the first business date prior to the calculated process date.
- If the recurring payment’s “Pay Backward” option is not selected (or if the “Pay Backward” option is not available), the process date for the new occurrence of the payment is adjusted to the first business date after the calculated process 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 process date, then the last calendar day of that month is used as the calculated process date.
Estimated Arrival Date - 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.
Payment Methods – The Bank and the bill payment service reserve the right to select the method in which to remit funds on your behalf to your Payee. These payment methods may include, but may not be limited to, an electronic (or ACH) payment, an electronic to check payment, a paper check, or a laser draft payment.
CANCELLING A PAYMENT
By following the directions within the bill payment service, bill payments can be changed or cancelled any time prior to the cutoff time on the scheduled processing date. There is no charge for canceling or editing a scheduled payment prior to the scheduled processing date. Once the bill payment service has begun processing a payment, it cannot be cancelled or edited. If processing has already begun and you wish to cancel the payment, you will need to submit a stop payment request. You will be responsible for the applicable stop payment fees.
STOP PAYMENT REQUESTS FOR PAPER CHECKS
Stop payment requests for paper checks may be initiated through the Online Banking System, in person at a branch, or by calling the Bank at (814)443-9200 or at (800) 972-1651. This service is not available within the bill payment service.
The Bank is not responsible for executing your Bill Pay instructions if your deposit account does not contain sufficient funds to complete your transaction or if the transaction would exceed the credit limit of your overdraft protection. If the Bank executes your payment instruction even though your deposit account does not contain sufficient funds to complete the transaction or the transaction would exceed the credit limit of your overdraft protection, you are responsible for the amount of the payment and any applicable overdraft fees as defined in your deposit agreement and the Bank’s Fee Schedule.
