Bill Pay is a secure and convenient service that enables you to receive, view, and pay your bills from one centralized place. You can use Bill Pay to send money to anyone in the United States that you would normally pay by check, automatic debit, or cash. Bill Pay sends payments electronically when possible, but if the biller can’t accept electronic payments, the service will print and mail a check for you.

Learn how to get started using Bill Pay using the instructions below:

Enroll in Bill Pay

To get started, select Pay My Bills from the Menu bar.

The first time you attempt to access the bill pay section of online banking, you will be prompted to begin online registration. You are first requested to read and accept the authorization disclosure. Failure to accept the disclosure terms prevents the registration process from proceeding. Once the disclosure is agreed to, complete the online registration form.

And that’s it! You’re ready to start using Bill Pay. Learn how to add bills and schedule payments.

Business Online Banking admins can create roles and add authorized users to bank on behalf of the business. Learn how to create roles and manage users here.
