Your payment scheduling experience will change in the enhanced Bill Pay service, giving you a better understanding of when your payments will be sent and when your payees should expect to receive payments.
When scheduling payments, you will be presented with two dates:
• Earliest Delivery Date, the date you wish for the payment to be sent.
• Estimated Delivery Date, the date your payee is expected to receive the payment. The Estimated Delivery Date displayed is dependent upon the Earliest Delivery Date you select and the method by which the payee receives payments, by check or electronically.
To assist you with identifying how each of your payees receives payment, payees will display either an envelope icon for check payments or an electrical plug icon for electronic payments.
• Electronic Payments - will be deducted from your account on the SEND DATE. Funds must be available on the Send Date for the payment to be sent.
• Check Payments - will be mailed to your payee on the Earliest Delivery Date, and the payment will be deducted from your account when the payee cashes or deposits the check.
