Bill Pay FAQs

  • Is bill pay secure?

    Yes, bill pay is highly secure. It is designed to fully safeguard privacy and the security of the Credit Union. Unlike normal internet communication, all information sent to and from the processing center is encrypted and sent through a secure communications channel. Messages cannot be redirected, read, or tampered with.

  • Who can I pay?

    Anyone including a cable company, doctor, or Uncle Charlie.

  • What if the person or business does not accept electronic payments?

    A paper check will be sent for payment.

  • How do I pay someone new?

    Enter the name of the person or business in the “Pay Someone New” box and click “Add.” Next, provide the required information and click “Continue.” That’s it! The person or business will be added to your payee list.

  • When will payments clear?

    If the payee is being paid with a paper check, the payment will clear approximately three business days from the processing date (i.e. date it was scheduled to be sent). If the payee is paid electronically, it will clear within two business days of the payment processing date.

  • How can I tell when my payments have been sent?

    Within bill pay, click “View History/Reports.”

  • Can a payment be cancelled?

    Yes. If the payment is still in pending status, click the “Cancel” link in the Pending Payments section on the Make Payments page.

  • Who has access to my bill pay and funding account?

    You are the only person who can authorize payments to be issued against your account.

Send Money

Easily send money to anyone who has a bank account (either at the Credit Union or another financial institution). Using your debit card, you can send money to anyone. The receiver can accept the deposit by either using their debit card or routing/transit number. Send Money transactions are real-time; all funds are withdrawn when sent and deposited when accepted. 

It's a simple 3-step process:

1. Choose "Send Money" from the menu in the Credit Union mobile app.

2. Input the receiver's phone number or email address, the amount to send, your debit card number and expiration date.

3. The receiver can either accept the money with their debit card number and expiration date or their bank account with routing number. (If the receiver uses their debit card to accept the deposit, the money will show in their account within minutes. If the receiver uses their account number, it will be deposited within three (3) business days).
