Bill Payment Terms and Conditions
As a user of Farmers State Bank’s Bill Payment service accessed through Ibanking, you authorize the Bank to post payment transactions generated by Online Bill Pay Service to the account(s) authorized and setup by you to pay utilizing the Online Bill Pay Service. You understand and agree that you are in full control of your checking accounts from which bill payments will be debited. Farmers State Bank, and any other entities involved in the payment system, cannot guarantee the time any payment will reach any of your creditors. Proper crediting of payment amounts is dependent on the account/vendor information provided by you. Providing correct address and account information will ensure timely delivery of payments.
With Bill Payment, you can schedule bills to be paid to any of your creditors. Bill Payment lets you pay anyone in the United States that you would normally pay by check or automated debit. The following exceptions apply to all types of payments: State or federal tax payments, Court-ordered payment, individuals or businesses outside of the United States.
Payments can be scheduled on a recurring basis so they are processed for the same amount at the frequency you specify. Payments can also be scheduled with a single frequency, thereby only submitting one payment. Regardless of which option you choose, please be aware of the following time constraints for each processing method to be sure that your payments will be made on time and to ensure you have sufficient funds to make your payment on the day the funds will be deducted from your account.
Payments can be sent from the Bill Payment system electronically or as a paper check, depending upon your creditors (payees) ability to receive funds electronically. Farmers State Bank has no control if your payment will be sent electronically or as a paper check. There will be no payments that process on a Saturday, Sunday or a federal holiday.
Electronic Payment Processing
Payments that are sent electronically will be deducted from your account on the Payment Date. FSB recommends setting the Payment Date for electronic payments at least three (3) business days prior to the Payment Due Date. "Due Date" is the date reflected on your Biller statement for which the payment is due. It is not the late date or grace period. Funds for electronic payments must be available in your account on the Payment Date in order for the payment to be processed. We will not be obligated to make a payment on the scheduled payment date unless your designated account has sufficient collected funds (If you have a pre-approved source of overdraft protection with available funds or credit, funds will be transferred accordingly). We reserve the right, without liability, to reject or reverse a payment. You are responsible for any applicable overdraft charges and other applicable fees we may impose.
Paper Check Processing
Payments that are sent as a paper check will be processed (mailed) on the Payment Date. Because paper check payments may take up to seven business days to reach certain third party payees (for example, your church, local plumber, or cleaning service), FSB recommends setting the payment process date seven business days ahead of the Payment Date. Do not include grace periods. Farmers State Bank’s Bill Payment processor will print the paper checks on your behalf and mail the check to the address you.ve supplied in the Payee setup. Funds for paper check payments must be available in your account on the Payment Date in order for the payment to be processed. We will not be obligated to make a payment on the scheduled payment date unless your designated account has sufficient collected funds (If you have a pre-approved source of overdraft protection with available funds or credit, funds will be transferred accordingly). We reserve the right, without liability, to reject or reverse a payment. You are responsible for any applicable overdraft charges and other applicable fees we may impose.
FSB is not responsible for problems associated with late Bill Payment payments, such as alleged harm to your credit standing or late fees, unless the payment is late because we failed to follow your timely and accurate payment instructions. We will not be responsible for inaccurate posting of payments by payees, items lost or mis-delivered by the postal service, your failure to provide timely and accurate instructions, or other causes outside our reasonable control. If you experience harm to your credit standing as a result of our bill payment processing error, our responsibility is limited to working with your creditor to correct any negative information reported about you to credit bureaus.
Farmers State Bank will process bill payment requests only to payees as authorized by you. We are not responsible for and may not process a bill payment request if the required transaction information is incomplete.
Once a payment has been made consistent with your instructions, it is final and cannot be revoked. You must resolve any disputes, including disputes about failure to correctly credit your payments, directly with the payee.
If you contact us before the payment is withdrawn from your account, we can stop the payment. Any efforts to stop a payment after this time is solely an accommodation to you cannot be guaranteed and we will not be responsible if we fail to stop the payment. There may be a charge for stop payments that you request. Please see the truth in savings disclosure on our website. www.fsb1879.com. By using Bill Payment, you agree to the terms of this Agreement.

Transfer Types and Limitations
Types of Transfers
You may use your enrolled Farmers State Bank account to transfer funds to and from any of your Accounts at other institutions for which you have provided the necessary information to Farmers State Bank.
We may from time to time make available additional or new features to the Service, including but not limited to, a next day service and a higher limit service. You will be approved or declined for any such additional service at our sole discretion and additional terms and conditions may apply. Please ensure that you have sufficient funds to effect any funds transfers from your Accounts. We may at any time decline to effect any funds transfer that it believes may violate applicable law.
Frequency of Transfers
We do not limit the number of funds transfers you may make; however, you may not make funds transfers in excess of the number of funds transfers allowed by the rules governing the applicable Accounts. We may from time to time for security and risk management reasons modify the limit, the frequency and the dollar amount of transfers you can make using our Service.
Dollar Amount of Transfers
You may not make funds transfers in excess of limits described on the Service. We reserve the right to change from time to time the dollar amount of funds transfers you are permitted to make using our Service. Without limiting the foregoing, in the event that your use of the Service has been suspended and reinstated as provided herein (see "Suspension and Reinstatement of Funds Transfer Service" below), you understand and agree that your use of the Service thereafter may be subject to lower dollar amount limitations than would otherwise be permitted by us.
Transfers subject to the Rules of the Accounts
Additionally, all funds transfers are also subject to the rules and regulations governing the relevant Accounts. You agree not to effect any funds transfers from or to an Account that are not allowed under the rules or regulations applicable to such accounts including, without limitation, rules or regulations designed to prevent the transfer of funds in violation of OFAC regulations.
Rejection of Transfers
We reserve the right to decline to effect any funds transfer, to submit funds transfer instructions or orders or to carry out change or cancellation requests.
You authorize us to select any means to execute your funds transfer instructions. You understand that to effect your funds transfer instruction we utilize the Automated Clearing House (ACH), using applicable ACH Rules, we debit one of your Accounts and credit another of your Accounts or an account of a Recipient. Once your Account has been debited, we credit our service provider's transfer account at the service provider's clearing bank. After our service provider and/or its clearing bank are reasonably certain that the debit will not be returned (in most cases this is usually between 3-4 banking days), our service provider will credit your Account. The sole purpose for our service provider's transfer account is to complete your funds transfer requests and for performing the services within the scope of this Agreement. The service provider earns no interest on the funds in the transfer account. If the debit side fails or is returned for any reason and the credit side has been released and cannot be collected, you authorize our service provider to collect from the Account to which the credit side of the funds transfer was sent. We reserve the right to resubmit a debit, or a portion of the debit, in the event of an insufficient or uncollected funds return and if we cannot collect the amount credited. To effect this collection, you understand and authorize us to debit the credited Account or the debited Account in either the same dollar amount as the original funds transfer or a portion of the debit. There may be a fee associated with such collection imposed by the financial institution holding the Account.
You understand and agree that we may from time to time impose additional charges in connection with your funds transfer transactions. Farmers State Bank will notify you of such fee in advance of the transaction. If you choose to proceed with the transaction, you authorize Farmers State Bank to debit your account in the amount indicated.
In the event that a debit to any of your Accounts, or any portion of any such debit, has failed and the credit side of such transaction has been released and cannot be collected, and we are unable to debit either the debited or the credited Account as set forth above, we reserve the right, and you hereby authorize us, to debit any of your other Accounts to the extent necessary to offset any resulting deficiency. We do not undertake to notify you in such event, other than by posting any such transfer or transfers to the applicable Account in accordance with this Agreement (see "Documentation," below).
You understand and agree that in the event we are unable to execute your funds transfer request utilizing the ACH, we may utilize other established payment mechanisms in order to complete your funds transfer instructions, such as wire transfer or check.
Suspension and Reinstatement of Funds Transfer Service
In the event that we at any time incur a problem with your use of the Service, including without limitation a fail in attempting to debit any of your Accounts or to collect with respect to any of your funds transfers as described above, and without limiting any other right or remedy that we may have under this Agreement or otherwise, we reserve the right to suspend your right to use the Service, immediately and without prior notice to you. You understand and agree that such action is reasonable for us to take in order to protect itself from loss. In the event of such suspension, you may request reinstatement of your service by contacting us using any of the methods provided for under this Agreement (see "Error Reporting and Claims," below). We reserve the right in its sole discretion to grant or deny reinstatement of your use of the Service. In the event we agree to reinstate you, we reserve the right to, and ordinarily will, initially reinstate your Service subject to lower per-transaction and monthly dollar limits and/or with other restrictions than otherwise might be available to you. Based upon your subsequent usage of the Service, Farmers State Bank in its sole discretion may thereafter restore your ability to effect transfers subject to such higher limits as may then be in effect (see "Dollar Amount of Transfers," above).
Your Responsibility for Errors
You understand that we must rely on the information provided by you and you authorize us to act on any instruction which has been or reasonably appears to have been sent by you, to submit funds transfer instructions on your behalf. You understand that financial institutions receiving the funds transfer instructions may rely on such information. We are not obliged to take any further steps to confirm or authenticate such instructions and will act on them without getting further confirmation. You understand that if you provide us with incorrect information or if there is any error in your instruction we will make all reasonable efforts to reverse or delete such instructions, but you accept full responsibility for losses resulting from any of your errors, duplication, ambiguities or fraud in the information that you provide. You agree not to impersonate any person or use a name that you are not authorized to use. If any information you provide is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, without limiting other remedies, Farmers State Bank reserves the right to recover from you any costs or losses incurred as a direct or indirect result of the inaccurate or incomplete information.

If we decide that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation within three (3) business days after we finish our investigation. You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.
We are not responsible for errors, delays and other problems caused by or resulting from the action or inaction of financial institutions holding the Account. Although we will try to assist you in resolving any such problems, you understand that any such errors, delays or other problems are the responsibility of the relevant financial institution. Any rights you may have against a financial institution for such errors, delays or other problems are subject to the terms of the agreements you have with such financial institution, including any time limits during which complaints must be made.
Means of Transfer
You authorize us to select any means we deem suitable to provide your funds transfer instructions to the applicable financial institution. These choices include banking channels; electronic means, funds transfer systems, mail, courier, or telecommunications services, intermediary banks and other organizations. You agree to be bound by the rules and regulations that govern the applicable funds transfer systems, such as CHIPS or automated clearing house (ACH) as published by the National Automated Clearinghouse Association (NACHA). We shall make all reasonable efforts to ensure that your transfer requests are processed on time; however, we reserve the right to hold funds beyond the normal period and if any interest is earned will be the property of Farmers State Bank
If we do not provide a funds transfer instruction on time, if we cause an incorrect amount to be removed from an Account or if we cause funds from an Account to be transferred to any account other than the Account specified in the applicable funds transfer instruction, we shall be responsible for returning the improperly transferred funds and/or for directing any misdirected funds to the proper Account. Farmers State Bank is not responsible or liable if your financial institution's system fails and we are unable to complete the transfer. Except as otherwise required by law, Farmers State Bank shall in no other event be liable for any losses and damages other than those arising from gross negligence or willful misconduct on our part or if we breach a representation or warranty of Farmers State Bank hereunder.
You agree that your transfer instructions constitute authorization for us to complete the transfer. You represent and warrant to us that you have enough money in the applicable Accounts to make any funds transfer you request that we make on your behalf through the Service. You understand and agree that we are not liable under any circumstances for any losses or damages if, through no fault of ours, you do not have enough money to make the funds transfer and the funds transfer is not completed or is later reversed or if your financial institution does not permit the transfer or the funds transfer would exceed the credit limit on any applicable overdraft line.
You also understand and agree that we are not responsible for any losses or damages if circumstances beyond our control (such as fire or flood) prevent us from making a funds transfer or if the Farmers State Bank website was not working properly and you knew about the breakdown when you started the funds transfer.
