How does it work?
To pay your bills online, simply add the companies and people you want to pay. We use this information to make the payments for your bills. After you add your bills, you can go to the Payment Center. The Pay Bills section lists all of the bills you’ve added. To pay a bill, enter a payment amount and the date when you want the company or person to receive your payment. You can also select this date from the calendar. Pay as many bills as you want at the same time from the Payment Center.
After you pay a bill, it may move to either the Pending Payments section or the Recent Payments section of the Payment Center.
- Pending Payments: Provide a quick summary of the payments that have not yet been processed.
- Recent Payments: Provide a list of bills that have been paid in the past 45 days.
You can also find a list of the pending and recent payments for a particular biller in the Payment Assistant. If you can’t find a payment in the Recent Payments section, go to Bill History, which shows all of the bills you paid in the past 24 months, including electronic bills and the bills that you pay automatically.

We use several methods to ensure that your information is secure.

Can I transfer money between accounts?
Yes. If you’ve added more than one account in BillPay, you can easily transfer money between the accounts. Go to Transfer Money and select the option to transfer money.
How long does it take to process an account transfer?
The Transfer Date is the date that the money is withdrawn from the From account. Transfers are typically deposited in your To account on the transfer date. Transfers may be delayed three business days depending on the transfer amount or five business days depending on the selected From account. Your transfer limits are determined based on information that we received from the consumer credit reporting agency that verified your information when you enrolled.
The calendar shows the earliest available date you can make a transfer.
What are account transfer limits and how are they set?
Limits for how much money you can transfer between accounts are established based on information you provided during enrollment. If you try to transfer an amount that is higher than your limits, a message informs you how much money you can transfer.
Your transfer limits are shown in the Make a Transfer section next to the amount you want to transfer.
A transfer fee may apply. The amount may vary based on the direction of the transfer. Transfers coming in may be charged a different fee from transfers going to an account at another institution.
What should I do if I transfer money to the wrong account?
If the transfer has not been processed, cancel the transfer. Once the transfer is canceled, schedule a new transfer to the correct account. If you’ve transferred the wrong amount, you can cancel the transfer if it has not been processed and reschedule it with the correct amount.
If you have a problem with a transfer that has been processed, you can send us a transfer inquiry from the Transfer Detail page. Our customer service will attempt to resolve the problem on your behalf.
What is a repeating transfer?
The automatic transfer of a specified amount of money from one account to another based on a schedule that you set up. For example, you may want to set up a repeating transfer schedule to automatically transfer $500 from your money market account to a checking account at the end of each month.
Quick Facts About Repeating Transfer Schedules.
You need to make three decisions that determine the frequency and duration of the transfers:
- When do you want to schedule the first transfer?
- How often do you want to transfer the money?
- When do you want to stop scheduling the transfers?
- When you set up a transfer schedule, the transfers are automatically scheduled for the duration you choose or until you cancel the repeating transfer.
Why is my reminder removed when I schedule a repeating transfer?
When you schedule a repeating transfer for the same To and From accounts as an existing reminder you’ve set up, the reminder is removed. If e-mail notification options are available when you set up the repeating transfer, you can select those options to receive e-mail about your transfer.
