Bill Payment Services FAQs

Q: What bills may I pay through Bill Payment?
A: You can pay most bills using Bill Payment - charge accounts, utilities, auto loans, even your doctor or day-care center. There are, however, organizations that will not accept payments via Bill Payment, such as the IRS and other taxing entities, court directed or Government related payments.

Q: How do I sign up for Bill payment?
A: You must have a personal checking account with The Savings Bank. When you click on the Bill Pay button, you will need to accept the Terms and Conditions. You will then be enrolled in real-time and can start setting up payees and paying bills immediately.

Q: When is Bill Payment available?
A: You may schedule payments 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

Q: What happens if there are non-sufficient funds (NSF)?
A: NSFs for bill pay are processed like any other debit. Other payments are not blocked or stopped. If more than two NSFs occur in close proximity, all payments will be sent by paper check until the bill pay service recovers the funds extended.

Q: How do I skip a recurring payment?
A: Recurring payments cannot be skipped, only deleted resulting in all future payments being deleted.
