Q Can I stop or modify my request to transfer funds?

However, you may initiate another transfer and transfer the money back.

Q How does the Bill Payment service work?
A Your payments are either electronically transferred from your Maple Bank checking account through the Automated Clearing House (ACH) network or checks are written from your account and then mailed to the payee. Many organizations are not setup to receive payments through the ACH network, and therefore, payments will be made by check.
  Top of Page
   
Q How are payments debited from my account when made through the ACH network?
A Payments made through the ACH network are debited from your account on the payment date you established for the payment. In other words, the date that you request the payment be made will also be the date the funds are debited from your account. We recommend you select a payment date at least three business days before the payee’s payment due date to ensure the payment is received on time.

Q How are payments debited from my account when made by check?
A Payments made by check are debited from your account like any other check that you may write on your account. For example, a check will be debited from your account after the payee has received and presented the check for payment and the check is then processed by our bank. We recommend you select a payment date at least 7 business days before the payee’s payment due date to ensure the payment is received on time.

Q Are there any payments I cannot make using Bill Payment?
A The only payments we recommend that should not be made include any type of a tax payment and court-ordered payment.

Q When should I set up my payments to make sure they are paid on time?
A You should allow 3 business days for payments being made electronically. For payments being made by check, you should allow 7 business days. The payment method for each of your payees will be clearly identified as either "electronic or "check."
  Top of Page
   
Q How will I know what payments have been made?
A Through your online access to your account, you will be able to view once a payment has been made. The payment will also be clearly itemized on your monthly bank statement.

Q What if my payee says they have not received my payment?

Q What do I need to know about security?
A The Online Banking service takes full advantage of the security provided by your Web browser and your Web server. Your transactions are encrypted as they travel over the Internet. Anyone trying to listen in on your communications will not be able to decipher them. The Netscape browser displays a key in the lower right corner of its window. When you are browsing a Web site that is not secure, the key will appear broken. When the session is secure (such as after you log onto Online Banking), the key appears solid with a blue background. In addition, your Online Banking account is protected by a password, also known as your personal identification number (PIN). No one can use your account without knowing your PIN.

Q What is 128-bit encryption?
A There are basically two types of encryption: "High" and "Standard". The difference between these types of encryption is the strength of capability. A "High" (128-bit) encryption is exponentially more powerful than a "Standard" (40 or 56-bit) encryption. "High" or 128-bit encryption means there are a septillion possible keys that could fit into the lock that holds your account information, but only one that works for each time you bank online. Maple Bank uses the highest level of encryption (128-bit) to ensure your online transmissions are secure. Our Online Banking system does not support use of browsers with 40 or 56-bit encryption.

Q How come I am “locked out” of the system?
A In order to access our Online Banking, you must enter a unique User ID and PIN. To keep unauthorized people from accessing your account by guessing your PIN, we have instituted a PIN lockout system. If your PIN is entered incorrectly three consecutive times, the user is “locked out” of the system. You must then contact us at (763) 427-4705 and have us rest your account to become “unlocked”.

Q I logged in, but now I have to “re-log” in?
A As a security measure, we have implemented an automatic log-off. If you are logged in to Online Banking but do not use it for 10 minutes, you will not be able to proceed until you “re-log” onto the system. Please remember to “log off” after each use.

Q Can I tell when a transfer has posted to my account?
A

If you approve a funds transfer or loan payment, a "Confirmation Number" will be displayed. You may use this number if you need to refer to the transfer at a later time. The Confirmation Number will also be listed on your monthly account statement. If you make a funds transfer or loan payment using Online Banking before 3:00 PM (Central Time), on a business day that we are open, we will consider that day to be the day of your funds transfer or loan payment. However, if you make a funds transfer or loan payment using Online Banking after 3:00 PM (Central Time) or on a day we are not open, we will consider that the funds transfer or loan payment was made on the next business day that we are open. Funds transfers performed before 3:00 PM (Central Time) may be viewed on Online Banking on the following business day. Loan transfers performed before 3:00 PM (Central Time) may be viewed on Online Banking on the second business day.

Q If my payment due date falls on a Saturday or Sunday, what should I do?
A

Bill payments may be established with a payment date which falls on a Monday through Friday (excludes federal holidays). Payments established with a payment date of Saturday, Sunday or a federal holiday, will be processed on the next business day. Remember, the payment date is not the payment’s due date. You should establish the payment date at least 3 business days prior to the payment due date for payments being made electronically. For payments being made by check, you should establish the payment date at least 5 business days prior to the payment due date.

Q Do I need to contact my payees to tell them I am using Maple Bank's Online Bill Payment service?
A

No, using the Bill Payment service will not change the way your payments are credited or how money is debited from your accounts.

Q Can I place a stop payment on a bill payment that I have already setup?
A

Yes, you can cancel an electronic bill payment at any time up until 12:00 PM, Noon, (Central Time) on the business day prior to the payment date you established. Once the bill payment has been debited from your account, you CANNOT cancel or stop payment on a bill payment which has been paid electronically. You may be able to stop a bill payment paid by check by contacting our banking office before the check has cleared. You will have to contact us by telephone to determine if the check has cleared. If the check has not cleared, we will immediately process your stop-payment request. We will notify you immediately if the check has already cleared. To be effective, this type of stop-payment request must precisely identify the name of the payee, the payee-assigned account number, the amount and scheduled date of the payment, and the payee ID number from the Bill Payment "Payment History" Screen. You will incur stop-payment charges as disclosed in the current Fee Schedule.

Q When I pay bills through the Bill Payment system, should I enter them in my paper check register?
A

Yes. that way you will be able to properly reconcile your checkbook with your Maple Bank statement each month.

Q What happens if I do not have enough money in my account to cover the bill payment I have set up?
A

If you request a payment for more than the balance in your account and the payment is to be made electronically, i.e. through the ACH network, in this case your payment will not be made. And, if you request a payment that will be paid by a check, the check will be written and the check will then be processed like any other check. However, when the check is processed by our bank and your account has insufficient funds to cover the check, then you may incur the same nonsufficient funds (NSF) charge for a check you may have written.
