Q. When are transfers processed?
A.Transfers made between deposit accounts, except scheduled transfers, will happen immediately and reflect in your Account Balance, providing there are no holds on the account and the funds are available for transfer. The transfer will also show in your Account History detail immediately.

Transfers from deposit accounts to make loan payments initiated any business day before 3:00 PM will be processed and show in your Account Balance as of the following business day. The transactions will show in your Account History detail two business days after they are initiated. Transfers from deposit accounts to make loan payments that are initiated any business day after 3:00 PM will not be processed or show in your Account Balance for two business days.

Q.What if there is an asterisk next to my balance and I want to do a transfer?
A. If an asterisk appears next to the balance of your account(s) it means that immediate online transfers are not available. You may utilize the Schedule Transfer feature to schedule the transfer for the next available day or you may try the immediate transfer again later that same day.

Electronic Bill Payment
Q.How do I apply for Bill Payment?
A.  After you have been approved for and are logged into WebBank, simply click on the Bill Payment button in your WebBank menu. This brings up the Bill Payment Registration page. Click on the link Click here to sign up for Bill Payment at the bottom of the screen. Complete the Bill Payment Registration form. You will then be asked to read and accept CSB's Bill Payment Terms and Conditions (Note: Failure to accept the Terms and Conditions prevents the registration process from proceeding.). After you have filled out the registration form and have read and accepted the Terms and Conditions, click on the Accept button. Your form will be electronically forwarded to CSB. You'll receive a first email from web@diginsite.com (our Internet Banking provider) once CSB has approved your registration and submitted it to our Bill Payment processor. You are required to respond to this first email. You will then receive a second email from web@diginsite.com when your Bill Payment has been enabled. Please allow up to 5 business days for your registration to be processed.

Q.After I have applied online for electronic Bill Payment, how long is it before I can pay a bill?
A.  Once you have completed the online sign-up form within CSB WebBank, it takes 3-5 business days for approval. Click on Bill Payment for application status. Please contact our Customer Service Center at 888-418-5626 if your application takes more than 5 business days to process.

Q.How long does it take to set up a new payee in the Bill Payment system?
A.  It just takes a few minutes. Once you have entered a new payee into the Electronic Bill Payment System, you may enter a payment to your new payee immediately. Please note that the payment date is the date the payment is to be sent to the payee and not the date the payment is due.

Q.How are my payments actually processed?
A.  Payments are processed on the day designated by you. Metavante, our bill payment processor, generates the payment by either a paper check or an electronic credit based on what type of payments the financial institution receiving the payment accepts. Your checking account will be electronically debited within two business days of the payment date you select. All payments can be viewed in View Payments; they will appear as pending, in process or sent.

Q.How long does it take for a payment to reach the payee?
A.  A payment that generates an electronic payment will take approximately 3 - 5 business days to reach the payee. If the payee is unable to accept electronic payments, please allow 5 - 10 business days for check payments to be received. Your payee list will display what payment form (check or electronically) the payee accepts.

Q.How do I actually use the Electronic Bill Payment System?
A.  Step-by-step instructions can be accessed by clicking on the Help button within CSB WebBank.

Q.What happens if I make a payment and there are insufficient funds in my account?
A.  If a 'non-sufficient funds' (NSF) condition exists, the debit will be returned via banking channels. The payment return will prompt the system to block your Bill Payment account, preventing you from making more bill payments until the NSF condition is resolved. Any future dated recurring payments scheduled for release during the time the account is blocked will not be sent. You will also be charged a returned item fee.

Q.How can I verify that a payment has been made or cancel a payment?
A.  You may go into the View Payments screen to view, edit or delete a payment. View Payments displays the status of all bill payments that are pending or have been sent to the payee. Payments with a status of "pending" may be edited or deleted. If you need to cancel a payment that has a status of "sent" - meaning it has already been transmitted - please contact Metavante Bill Payment Customer Service at 1-800-823-7555.

Q.Who do I contact if my bill was not paid?
A.  Please contact Metavante's Bill Payment Customer Service Department at 1-800-823-7555 to verify where the payment was sent and when. You'll need the confirmation number of the payment (this can be found in the View Payments section of Bill Payment) and payee name.

Q.I noticed that a payee address has changed. Why is that?
A.  Payees supply an updated address after a payment is received. When this happens, the address is automatically updated in the Payee Administration area.

Q.How far back can I view my Bill Pay History?
A.  Up to six months of Bill Payment history can be viewed online via CSB WebBank. Our bill payment processor, Metavante, maintains payment history for up to seven years.
