  • View account balances for checking, savings, certificates of deposit, and loans
  • View historical account information
  • Transfer funds between authorized accounts

You should refer to Section III(B)(3) of this contract.

B. Additional Information about the Online Banking Services

1. Account Access
To use the Online Banking Service, you must first link your accounts with us to the Online Banking Service. You can link any of your personal deposit, or loan accounts with us to the Online Banking Service. You must designate one checking or money market deposit account as your primary Online Banking account. We link your other accounts to your primary account. We recommend that you designate a checking account rather than a money market deposit account because of the limits on transfers from a money market deposit account, which are discussed below.

You may transfer funds through the Online Banking Service in any amount not to exceed the amount of available funds in your account.

We may refuse to act on your fund transfer instruction if sufficient funds are not available in your account on the date you want us to transfer funds.

2. Processing Fund Transfers
We will process a fund transfer on the same business day as your Online Banking request, if we receive your instructions before the end of the business day 2:00 p.m. Central Time Monday through Friday. If we receive your instruction after 2:00 p.m., or if the date of your request is not a business day, we will process the transaction on our next business day. If you schedule a fund transfer for a future date, we process the transaction on that date, if that day is a business day. If the date that you schedule a payment falls on a weekend or holiday, we process your instruction the next business day. We deduct the funds transfer amount from your account on the date we process your instruction.

If there are insufficient funds in your account to make the transfers or payments you have authorized, we may refuse to make the transfer or payment or we may make the transfer or payment and overdraw your account. In either event, you are responsible for any nonsufficent funds ("NSF") and overdraft charges that may apply.

3. Transfers from Savings/Money Market Deposit Accounts
Federal regulations require us to limit either by contract or in practice the number of transfers from savings and money market deposit accounts. You are limited to six (6) preauthorized electronic fund transfers per statement cycle. Of these six transactions, you are limited to no more than three (3) transactions per month by check, draft, or point of sale. Each fund transfer through Online Banking Service from your savings or money market deposit account is counted as one of the six limited transfers you are permitted each month. However, payments to your loan accounts with us are not counted toward this limit for savings/money market deposit accounts.

IV. Fees

A. There is no monthly service charge for the Online Banking Service. You should note that depending on how you access the Online Banking Service, you may incur other charges. These include:

  • Normal checking account fees and service charges
  • Online service provider fees
  • The purchase of financial management software

B. For savings accounts/money market deposit accounts, an excess transaction fee may apply to each transaction made through Online Banking Services that exceeds the number of limited transactions you may make. These transaction limitations and fees are described in your deposit account agreement.

V. Parties' Responsibilities

  • If circumstances beyond our control (such as fire, flood, or act of war) prevent the transaction, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken
  • If you default under this agreement or any other agreement with the Bank
  • If you or the Bank terminates this agreement
