Bill Payment Service Agreement / Disclosure

Fees

Our Bill Payment Service through Online Banking is free if you make one bill payment per month. A $5.00 inactivity fee will be charged to your account if you do not pay at least one bill during the month. (waived the first 3 months after enrollment.) Peoples National Bank may change the above rates with at least 30 days prior notice. There is a fee of $9.95 for expedited electronic payment or $14.95 for overnight check.

Bill Payments

You may electronically schedule payments in any amount not less than $1, or exceeding $24,999 through this system to any payee that generates a bill or invoice to you and that has an address. You may not make a payment of alimony, child support, taxes or other governmental fees or court directed payments through the system.

Expedited Payments

Expedited bill payments allows you to make an expedited payment to a payee. Depending on the recipient, payments may either be an electronic payment or an overnight check to the payee. For electronic transactions, delivery time may be same-day, next-day or later depending upon the time of day, the payee capabilities, and other factors. For overnight checks, payments initiated prior to the daily cutoff time will be delivered by the next business day.

Expedited electronic payments are available for a limited number of payees. Availability of expedited payment options will be limited based on biller capabilities, time of day, payment delivery mechanisms and other factors. Expedited overnight checks will be unavailable for delivery to PO Box addresses or locations in any foreign or U.S. territory outside of the contiguous 48 states and District of Columbia. The user is responsible for entering and verifying any address for overnight check payments to ensure it is correct and is specified as a valid overnight package address by the biller.

Due to the inherent need to expedite the payment, payment instructions will be processed and completed immediately upon submission of a request from a User. The User will not have the ability to edit or cancel the payment instructions after he has confirmed the payment request.

External Transfer Service Agreement

The External Transfer Service Agreement (the “agreement”) supplements and constitutes a part of the Peoples National Bank Online Banking Service Agreement/Disclosure, and sets forth additional terms and conditions for use of the Peoples National Bank External Transfer services. You must enroll in Internet Banking and execute the Internet Banking Agreement before you can enroll in the External Transfer Service.   To the extent there is conflict between the terms of this Agreement and the Internet Banking Service Agreement, the terms of this Agreement will govern your use of the External Transfer service. Further, by enrolling in the External Transfer service, you agree that the terms of this Agreement apply to your use of External Transfers and do not apply to other products, services, or transactions under the Internet Banking Agreement or any other Agreement you have entered into with Peoples National Bank (the “Bank”).

Enrollment

Within Online Banking, you have the option to participate in the External Transfer Service, which allows you to transfer funds between your eligible accounts at the Bank (checking, savings, and money market) and checking or savings accounts owned by you at other United States Financial Institutions, assuming that the transfer is permitted by your other financial institution and by law. You may only transfer funds between accounts where you are an owner of both accounts and the terms and conditions of the accounts allow deposits and/or withdrawals of the type you are initiating. To enroll an External Account in the Service, you will need to know the account type (i.e. checking or savings), the routing number, and the account number of the external account. Once the external transfer account information has been submitted, the Bank will conduct two small transactions (under $1) to validate the external account information. This process generally takes between one and three business days. You will need to verify the exact amounts of the small transactions by reviewing the account history of the external account. Once the external transfer account has been verified, it is available for External transfer transactions.If you need to access an external loan for the purposes of external transfer, please contact the Bank for assistance as you will not be able to setup a loan account within Online Banking.

Processing

For outgoing transfers, as long as funds are available the funds will be debited from your Peoples National Bank account on the Business Day for which you request the transfer to be made (“the scheduled date”) and typically will be credited to the External Account on the second or third business day after the transfer’s scheduled date. If sufficient funds are not available to complete the external transfer, the transaction will not occur.

For incoming transfers, the funds will be credited to your Peoples National Bank account on the next business day, but may not be available for use until we receive the funds from the other financial institution. This may take up to 4 business days.

The cutoff time to process an External Transfer is 6 p.m. Central Time, on business days. Any transfer initiated after the applicable cutoff time will be considered as being initiated on the next Business Day.

One time future dated or recurring transfers scheduled for a weekend or a non-business day will be processed on the next business day.

Limitations

External transfers are subject to the following dollar limits and we may change these limits at any time for any reason without further notice:

    • Per transaction limit – $2,500
    • Daily aggregate limit - $2,500
    • Monthly aggregate limit - $10,000

You will be able to setup three external accounts to be used to perform external transfers within Online Banking.

Please refer to the Deposit Agreement for information regarding monthly transaction limits for savings and money market accounts.

Your Responsibility for Errors

You understand that the Bank must rely on the information provided by you and you authorize the Bank to act on any instruction which has been or reasonably appears to have been sent by you, to submit External Transfers on your behalf. You understand that financial institutions receiving the transfer instructions may rely on such information. The Bank Is not obliged to take any further steps to confirm or authenticate such instructions and will act on them without getting further confirmation. You understand that if you provide the Bank with incorrect information or if there is any error in your instruction we will make all reasonable efforts to reverse or delete such instructions, but you accept full responsibility for losses resulting from any of your errors, duplication, ambiguities or fraud in the information that you provide. You agree not to impersonate any person or use a name that you are not authorized to use. If any information you provide is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, without limiting other remedies, the Bank reserves the right to recover from you any costs or losses incurred as a direct or indirect result of the inaccurate or incomplete information.

The external bank will have up to 60 days to return transactions to us under if the account holder claims that the transaction is unauthorized or revokes the authorization. Any items returned to us will be posted to your account. You agree to be liable to cover any debit entries that have been returned to us.

Fees

There is no fee for use of this service. Peoples National Bank reserves the right to change the fees or other terms described in this Agreement, as set forth in the Internet Banking Agreement.

Cancelling a Transfer

Transfers may be cancelled up until the cut-off time on the scheduled date. Within Online Banking, you can view your scheduled external transfers that have not completed processing, there will be the option to either edit or delete the transfer.   If the transfer is a recurring transfer, then you may cancel the entire transfer plan as long as the request is received before the Process date of the next recurring transfer. Once the recurring transfer is cancelled, all future transfers will also be cancelled and you must reschedule the recurring transfer if you want transfer to be made in the future.

Termination of Service

If, at any time, you wish to terminate your use of the service for any or all enrolled External Accounts, you will need to discontinue use of the service and cancel any scheduled transactions, whether one-time or recurring transactions.
