It also increases your privacy because only you can access your account information, account numbers, and payment history. As a result, you maintain tighter control of your account with real-time access to your payment activity.

Q: How long does it take before my payment is received?
A: Generally, your payment is received within 2 to 7 days, depending on whether or not it is sent electronically or via paper check.

Q: How are the scheduled payments processed with Bill Payment?
A: Most scheduled payments are sent electronically and funds are withdrawn from your account on the payment date.
