What Is BillPay?

BillPay is a free online tool available in online banking. Once you enroll, you will be able to pay your bills while avoiding writing checks. This will also keep your account information private and help you avoid the cost of postage. 

This feature allows you to pay bills either manually or automatically. It will also allow you to set up optional reminders and receive e-bills from most major companies and utility providers.

How Do I Use BillPay?

First, you will need to log onto online banking on your desktop or mobile app. Then select "BillPay Setup" under the "Transactions" tab in the online banking sidebar. You will then be prompted to select one or more active checking and savings accounts. Once you've selected your accounts, you can then use the "Pay Bills" feature under the "Transactions" tab to schedule your payments.

Please note that this is a standard service that is free to all members. This bill payment should occur within 1-2 business days of the "Send On" date.

Which Types of Bills Can I Pay Using BillPay?

You can make payments to any domestic company or entity using BillPay. However, please note that federal, state, and local agencies typically cannot accept this form of payment. Please contact these agencies before attempting to schedule payments in online banking.
