Q. How do I stop a bill payment?

A. Bill payments that have not been processed can be cancelled through your Bill Pay tab in online banking. If the payment has been processed, we may be able to place a stop payment on your account. Electronic bill payments posted to your account are not eligible for stop payment. Contact us at 1-877-358-6554 during regular business hours to inquire about stop payments or submit a Stop Payment form from the Support tab in your online banking. Forms submitted through internet banking after business hours will be viewed and processed on the next business day.
