II. Access to Services
The Bank will provide instructions on how to access the Online Banking Service or Bill Payment Service. You will gain access to your Online Accounts through the use of your Internet-enabled device, your ISP, your Password and your Online Banking ID.
For purposes of transactions, the Bank's business days are Monday through Friday, excluding legal holidays. All Online Banking transaction requests (except Bill Payments) received after 6 p.m. on business days and all transactions, which are requested on Saturdays, Sundays, or legal holidays on which the Bank chooses to remain closed, will be processed on the Bank's next business day.
III. Banking Transactions with Online Banking
- Account Access. With the exclusion of Passbook savings accounts, you may access all personal and business accounts on which you are an authorized signer.
- Transfer Funds. In addition to viewing account information, you may use Online Banking to conduct the transfer of funds among your designated Interest Checking, Personal Checking, Business Checking type, Statement Savings, Premium Money Market, and Money Market accounts. In addition, you may transfer funds into loan accounts to make payments, or from line of credit accounts that have an available balance. NOTE: Because regulations require the Bank to limit preauthorized transfers (including Online Banking transfers), the following limitations apply:
You may make no more than 6 withdrawals or pre-authorized, automatic, Online, or telephonic transfers of funds to another account or to a third party, from a Money Market, Premium Money Market, or Statement Savings account during each monthly statement cycle. The date the check or other transaction clears your account (rather than the date of the check or transaction) will determine whether you have exceeded the permitted number of transactions. If you exceed these restrictions, you may incur service charges, and federal law requires us to convert your account to a checking type account for repeated violations. The number of withdrawals made in person, by ATM, by mail, or by messenger is not limited. We monitor these accounts for compliance.
- Additional Services. New services may be introduced for Online Banking from time to time. The Bank will notify you of the existence of these new services. By using these services when they become available, you agree to be bound by the rules which will be provided to you concerning these services.
IV. Schedule of Fees
Personal Accounts. The Bank offers the benefits and convenience of the Online Banking Service to you free.
Business Accounts. The Online Banking Service (which allows transfers between accounts and unlimited viewing of accounts) is currently free of charge.
The Bill Payment Service is an additional $5.95 per month for up to 10 bills. Bills over 10 will be $.50 each. The fees will be deducted automatically from the Bill Payment account with the lowest sequential account number. For other fees, please refer to our Special Service Charges brochure previously provided to you. If you have an analyzed business account, these fees can be deducted from your earnings credit.
V. Documentation of Electronic Transactions
Periodic Statements. You will receive a monthly statement of your Business Checking type, Personal Checking, Interest Checking, Statement Savings, Money Market, and Premium Money Market accounts.
Notice of Varying Payments. You should receive at least 10 days' written notice from the originator of a pre-authorized transfer if a particular transfer will be different from the pre-authorized amount. If the originator informs you of the right to receive notice of all varying payments, you may choose to receive notice only when the transfer to be made is more or less than a range of amounts that you may choose, or differs from the previous transfers by an amount that you may choose. This notice should come from the originator of the transfer, and we are not responsible if the notice is not given.
VI. Lost and Stolen Passwords; Unauthorized Transfers
You are responsible for keeping your Password and Online Account information confidential. In order to protect yourself against fraud, you should adhere to the following guidelines:
- Do not give out your account information, Password, or Online Banking ID;
- Do not leave your PC unattended while you are in the Bank's Online Banking Site;
- Never leave your account information accessible to others; and
- Do not send privileged account information (account number, Password, etc.) in any public or general e-mail system.
Tell us AT ONCE if you believe your Password has been lost or stolen, or if you suspect any fraudulent activity on your account. Telephoning is the best way of keeping your possible losses down.
If you believe your Password has been lost or stolen or that someone has transferred or may transfer money from your account without your permission, call the Bank's Online Banking Department immediately at (202) 546-8000; or write us at 316 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE, Washington, DC 20003 Attn: Online Banking Department.
Also, if your statement shows Web Transactions, ACH debit Bill Payment transfers, or checks that you did not make, tell us AT ONCE.
If you believe your Password has been lost or stolen, please use the Password change feature within the Online Banking section of the Web site to change your Password.
VII. Electronic Mail (E-mail)
If you properly send the Bank an e-mail message, the Bank will be deemed to have received it on the following business day. You should not rely on e-mail if you need to report an unauthorized transaction from one of your accounts or if you need to stop a payment that is scheduled to occur.
- NOTE: E-mail transmissions outside of the Online Banking site are NOT secure. We advise you NOT to send us or ask for sensitive information such as account numbers, Password, account information, etc. via any general or public e-mail system. If you wish to contact us electronically, please use the Contact Us link provided in our Online Banking site.
VIII. Bill Payment Services
Description of Service. The Bill Payment Service permits you to use your Internet-enabled device to direct payments from your designated online Bill Payment Account to third parties you wish to pay. Your Bill Payment Account must be a Personal Checking, Interest Checking, or Business Checking type account. You may designate multiple Bill Payment accounts. Through the Bill Payment Service, you can pay bills from your Bill Payment Account to businesses or individuals.
All payments you make will be deducted from the checking account that you designate as your Bill Payment Account for the Bill Payment Service. Any payments you wish to make through this Service must be payable in U.S. dollars to a payee located in the United States and to a limited number of United States military bases located abroad. We reserve the right to restrict types of payees to whom payments may be made using the Service from time to time. YOU SHOULD NOT USE THE BILL PAYMENT SERVICE TO MAKE PAYMENTS TO SETTLE SECURITIES PURCHASES, PAYMENTS TO INTEREST BEARING ACCOUNTS, TAX PAYMENTS, OR COURT ORDERED PAYMENTS. Payments for these payees will be your sole responsibility if delayed or improperly processed or credited.
Scheduling Payments. Funds must be available in your Bill Payment account on the scheduled payment date. If the date you schedule a payment to be initiated falls on a non-business day (Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday), funds must be available in your Bill Payment Account the following business day. Our Bill Payment service may make payments either by transferring funds electronically to the payee, or by mailing the payee a check.
You may choose to schedule Recurring payments or One-Time Payments. If a Recurring payment is chosen, the bill will be paid automatically each billing period. One-Time Payments are not made until you enter the amount of the current bill.
For all payments, you agree to allow at least seven (7) business days between the date you schedule a payment to be initiated and the payment due date (that is, the due date shown on your invoice or provided in your agreement with the payee, not taking into account any applicable grace period). If you do not, you will be fully responsible for all late fees, finance charges or other action(s) taken by the payee. If you schedule your payment and follow all instructions provided, but the payee does not receive the payment in a timely manner, Bank will work with the payee on your behalf to resolve any issues.
||No Duty to Monitor Payments. The Bank and its processor are only responsible for exercising ordinary care in processing and sending payments upon your authorization in accordance with this Agreement. The Bank will not be liable in any way for damages you incur for any of the following reasons:
- insufficient funds in your Bill Payment Account to make the payment on the processing date;
- delays in mail delivery;
- changes to the payee's address or account number unless we have been advised of the change in advance;
- the failure of any payee to correctly account for or credit the payment in a timely manner; and
- any other circumstances beyond the control of the Bank and its processor.
If the session during which you schedule a payment ends by 11:00 a.m. on a business day, the Bank will be considered to have received it on that day. Otherwise, it will be considered received on the following business day. For all entries made using the Services, the time recorded by the Online Banking Service will be considered the official time of the transaction.
If your Bill Payment Account does not have sufficient funds to make an electronic payment as of the date the transfer or payment is attempted or, scheduled to be made, we will continue to make daily attempts to collect the funds until the payment is either cancelled or expires. In all cases, you are responsible for either making alternate arrangements for the payment or rescheduling the payment through the Service. In the case of recurring payments, only the payment currently scheduled will be canceled. Recurring payments scheduled for future dates will not be affected.
||Cancel or Change Payments Instructions. Payments must be changed or canceled using the Service by you online prior to 11:00 a.m. on the business day that the transaction is scheduled to be initiated.
||No Signature Required. When any payment or other online Service generates items to be charged to your account, you agree that we may debit your Bill Payment account without requiring your signature on the item, and without prior notice to you.
IX. Linked Accounts
Accounts should be linked on the online system by a common Tax Identification number as long as the applicant is an authorized signer on the account(s) requested to be linked.

If it is necessary to do this, we will credit your account within 10 business days for the amount you think is in error, so that you will have the use of the money during the time it takes us to complete the investigation.
