How to Set Up Payees/Payments
Payees – If You want to add a new Payee, select the “Payee” tab located in the Service or speak to a member service representative.
The Financial Institution reserves the right to refuse the designation of a Payee for any reason.
Payments – You may add a new fixed payment to a Payee by accessing the service and entering the appropriate information. Most other additions, deletions, or changes can be made in writing or by using the Service.
You may pay any Payee within the United States (including U.S. territories and APO’s / AEO’s).
We are not responsible for payments that cannot be made due to incomplete, incorrect, or outdated information.
The Service reserves the right to select the method in which to remit funds on Your behalf to Your Payee. These payment methods may include, but are not limited to an electronic payment (e.g. through ACH) or a laser draft payment (funds remitted to the Payee are deducted from Your Payment Account when the laser draft is presented to Us for payment).
Payment Cancellation Requests
You may cancel or edit any Scheduled Payment (including recurring payments) by following the directions within the Service’s application. There is no charge for canceling or editing a Scheduled Payment. Once the Service has begun processing a payment it cannot be cancelled or edited, therefore a stop payment request must be submitted. Please refer to SkyOne Federal Credit Union’s All-in-One Account Disclosure for information on stop payment requirements and to SkyOne Federal Credit Union’s Schedule of Service Charges regarding any fees, as applicable.
Stop Payment Requests
The Service’s ability to process a stop payment request will depend on the payment method and whether or not a check has cleared. The Service also may not have a reasonable opportunity to act on any stop payment request after a payment has been processed. If You desire to stop any payment that has already been processed, You must contact Member Services. Although the Service will make every effort to accommodate Your request, the Service will have no liability for failing to do so. We may also require you to present your stop payment request in writing within fourteen (14) days. The charge for each stop payment request will be the current charge for such service as set out in our Schedule of Service Charges.
Tax payments and court ordered payments may be scheduled through the Service, however such payments are discouraged and must be scheduled at Your own risk. In no event shall the Service be liable for any claims or damages resulting from Your scheduling of these types of payments. The Service has no obligation to research or resolve any claim resulting from an exception payment. All research and resolution for any misapplied, misposted or misdirected payments will be the sole responsibility of You and not of the Service.
The Bill Paying Process
Single Payments – a single payment will be processed on the Business Day that You designate as the payment’s processing date, provided the payment is submitted prior to the daily cut-off time on that date. The daily cut-off time, which is controlled by Us, is currently 4 p.m. EST.
A single payment submitted after the cut-off time on the designated process date will be processed on the next Business Day. If You designate a non-Business Day as the payment’s processing date, the payment will be processed on the first Business Day following the designated processing date.
Recurring Payments – When a recurring payment is processed, it is automatically rescheduled by the system. Based upon Your selected frequency settings for the payment, a processing date is calculated for the next occurrence of the payment. If the calculated processing date is a non-Business Day, it is adjusted based upon the following rules:
- If the recurring payment’s “Pay Before” option is selected, the processing date for the new occurrence of the payment is adjusted to the first Business Day prior to the calculated processing date.
- If the recurring payment’s “Pay After” option is selected, the processing date for the new occurrence of the payment is adjusted to the first Business Day after the calculated processing date.
Note: If Your frequency settings for the recurring payment specify the 29th, 30th, or 31st as a particular day of the month for processing and that day does not exist in the month of the calculated processing date, then the last calendar day of that month is used as the calculated processing date.
Single and Recurring Payments
The system will calculate the Estimated Arrival Date of Your payment. This is only an estimate, so please allow ample time for Your payments to reach Your Payees.
Cancelling a Payment
A bill payment can be changed or cancelled anytime prior to the cutoff time on the scheduled processing date.

Liability for Unauthorized Use—Mobile Banking Transactions
Tell us AT ONCE If you believe that your personal access code has been lost, stolen, or discovered by an unauthorized person. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your possible losses down. You could lose all the money in your account (plus your maximum overdraft line of credit, if applicable). If you tell us within two business days of your discovery, you can lose no more than $50 if someone used your personal access code without your permission. If you do NOT tell us within two business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your access code, and we can prove that we could have stopped someone from using your access code without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500.
Also, if your statement shows transfers that you did not make, tell us at once. If you do not tell us within 60 days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money you lost after 60 days if we can prove that we could have stopped someone from taking the money if you had told us in time. If a good reason (such as a long trip or hospital stay) kept you from telling us, we will extend the time periods.
If you authorize someone else to use your personal access code, you are responsible for all transactions which that person initiates at any time, even if the amount of the transaction or number of transactions exceeds what you authorized.
We will disclose information to third parties about your account or the transfers you make only when one of the following conditions exists:
- When necessary to complete a transaction requested by you
- In order to verify the existence and status of your account(s), such as for a retail merchant or credit reporting agency
- In order to comply with government agencies or court orders
- If you give us written permission
You will receive monthly account statements. You may elect to receive your monthly statements electronically through our eStatements service.

If we need more time, however, we may take up to 45 calendar days (90 calendar days if the transfer involved a new account, a point-of-sale transaction, or a foreign initiated transfer) to investigate your complaint or question. If we decide to do this, we will credit your account within 10 business days (20 business days if the transfer involved a new account) for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have use of the money during the time it takes us to complete our investigation. If we ask you to put your complaint or question in writing and we do not receive it within 10 business days, we may not credit your account. An account is considered a new account for 30 days after the first deposit is made.
We will tell you the results within three business days after completing our investigation. If we decide that there was no error, we will send you a written explanation. You may ask for copies of the documents that we used in our investigation.
