You may use Bill Pay virtually any time, day or night, 7 days a week. However, the service may be temporarily unavailable due to record updating or technical difficulties. In addition, access to Bill Pay is made available pursuant to an agreement by and between the Credit Union and Profitstars, a third party service provider. Any interruption of service or access caused by our third party service provider will also prevent your use of the service. To utilize the services, you will need to satisfy the system’s security procedures.
Member Services can be reached 24 hours a day online or by calling 855.621.4782.
Designation of Primary Checking Account
In order to use Bill Pay, you must have a Checking Account with the Credit Union. The Checking Account must be designated as your “primary” account (“Primary Checking Account”) and will be treated as your Primary Checking Account for transactions accomplished through Bill Pay.
Online Bill Payments
1. Account Designation and Payees
Bill Payments you make through Bill Pay will be deducted from your Primary Checking Account. You may utilize Bill Pay to make bill payments to an unlimited number of payees. Any payee you wish to pay through Bill Pay must be located in the United States and payable in U. S. dollars. Each payee must appear on the payee list you create through Michigan First Online Banking or Michigan First Mobile. Once payees have been created, payments can be initiated through Michigan First Online Banking or Michigan First Mobile, and the account you are paying with must be in your name. The Credit Union reserves the right to refuse to payee (even if not listed above) for security or any other reason. If a payment is refused, the Credit Union will promptly notify you.
Funds will be taken out of your Primary Checking Account on the date referred to as the “Process Date” in order to pay the bill on the delivery date you have requested.
For those payees whom can accept Bill Payments electronically, the payment will be sent within three business days of the requested “delivery date.” However, some payees are not set up to accept electronic payments. In these cases, a check will be sent on the “send on” date, which may be as many as five business days prior to the requested “delivery date” in order to process and deliver the payment to the payee by that requested date.
You must initiate a payment in advance of the “delivery date” (3 or 5 business days, as indicated) for Bill Pay to process and deliver your requested payment by the “delivery date” so that the funds can be delivered to the payee on the payment due date, or for mortgage payments, on or before the due date (the due date shown on your invoice or provided in your agreement with the payee, not taking into account any grace period provided by the payee.) If you do not allow sufficient time, you will assume full responsibility and shall be liable for all late fees, finance charges, or other actions taken by the payee.
The Credit Union is responsible only for exercising ordinary care in making payments upon your authorization and for mailing or sending a payment to the designated payee. IN NO EVENT SHALL MICHIGAN FIRST BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS (EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY THEREOF) ARISING IN ANY WAY OUT OF THE INSTALLATION, USE, OR MAINTENANCE OF THE EQUIPMENT, SOFTWARE, AND OR THE SERVICE. We will use our best efforts to make all of your payments properly. However you agree that we shall not be liable for untimely or failed bill payments as the result of your failure to maintain sufficient available funds to complete the transaction, your failure to allow sufficient time between the “delivery date” selected and the day the payment is initiated, your failure to provide us with accurate payee and billing information, Online Banking and/or Bill Pay service downtime, payee mishandling or delay of a payment sent by Bill Pay, delays in mail delivery, changes of merchant address or account number, or other circumstances beyond our control that prevent completion of the transaction even though we have taken reasonable steps to avoid those circumstances. In the event we cause an incorrect amount of funds to be removed from your account or direct funds to a payee that do not comply with your instructions, we will return the improperly transferred funds to your account and/or transfer funds to the appropriate payee. In the case that you do notice an error or have any questions in regards to Bill Pay, please contact 855.621.4782.
This online/mobile service will confirm a today transaction only if you have sufficient available funds in your checking account or overdraft line to cover it. Future-dated transactions are stored by the system, but funds are not debited from your account until the “Process Date” as determined by the “delivery date” you have requested the payee to receive the payment. You will be notified if a payment fails.
Authorization to Charge Accounts
You authorize the Credit Union to charge your Primary Checking Account for any transactions accomplished through the use of Online Bill Pay, including the amount of any bill payment that you make, and any charges for the service. In adding a payee or maintaining a payee list, even if no payments are scheduled, you are electing to use the full Bill Payment service and therefore you authorize the Credit Union to process online bill payments and to transfer funds according to the instructions we receive if the instructions are received from you through Bill Pay. You authorize the Credit Union and/or our third party service provider to initiate any reversing entry or reversing file, and to debit your accounts at the Credit Union or elsewhere, in order to correct any mistaken credit entry. If a Bill Pay request describes the beneficiary inconsistently by name and account number, execution of the request will occur on the basis of the account number, even if it identifies a payee different from the named beneficiary. Your obligation to pay the amount of the online bill payment to the Credit Union is not excused in such circumstances. In addition, you agree to be liable for any and all losses associated with failure to comply with this Agreement and you authorize the Credit Union to deduct such amount, including attorney’s fees, from your account for any actions needed to collect such amounts.
Limitations on Services
- Dollar Amounts. There is a dollar limit of $ 9,999.99 (or the available balance in your Primary Checking Account, whichever is less) on any payment.
- Frequency. An unlimited number of online bill payments can be made each month.
- Available Funds Required. All online bill payments initiated through Online Bill Pay are subject to there being sufficient funds available in your Primary Checking Account to cover the transfer on the Scheduled Initiation Date or earlier as outlined in this Agreement.
Documentation and Verification of Payments and Transfers
1. Confirmation Numbers
Upon completion of a transaction using Online Bill Pay, a confirmation number will be given. You should record this number, along with the payee, scheduled date and transaction amount in your checkbook register (or other permanent record,) because this will help in resolving any problems that may occur. You can also print the page/screen that contains the number, and/or view the information in your account history. No printed receipts are issued through Bill Pay.
2. Periodic Statements
Information concerning Bill Pay transactions will be shown on your normal monthly statement for the account from which payments are made.
Canceling or Modifying Online Bill Pay Authorized Payments Right to Cancel Payment
In order to cancel or modify a Bill Pay transaction designated you must use Bill Pay or Michigan First Mobile and follow the instructions provided to you. If your transaction is scheduled for a date in the future, you must cancel the payment Bill Pay before 2:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (as observed in Lathrup Village, Michigan) of the day before the Scheduled Initiation Date.
Payments processed electronically cannot be stopped after your account has been debited. However, if necessary, you may request a stop payment order be placed on paper checks issued for online bill payments. The Credit Union will only accept a verbal or written notice to stop a Bill Pay non-electronic payment if the notice is received by us in time to act on the order and includes sufficient information for us to identify the payment (i.e. your Credit Union account number, transaction date, dollar amount, payee, etc.). You understand that the exact information is necessary to properly stop the payment. If you give us incorrect or incomplete information, we will not be responsible for failing to stop payment.
Cancellation and Reactivation of Service
1. Cancellation by Account Owner
Bill Pay can be cancelled at any time by any owner of the Primary Checking Account by calling our Member Service Department at 800.664.3828, or by writing to 27000 Evergreen Road, Lathrup Village, MI 48076. Previously paid service fees will not be reimbursed.
2. Cancellation by Credit Union
