ONLINE BANKING & BILL PAYMENT
This Agreement describes your rights and obligations as a user of the Online Banking Service or the Bill Payment Service ("Services"). It also describes the rights and obligations of Mutual Savings Association, FSA. Please read this Agreement carefully. By pressing the “I Accept” button below, you agree to comply with the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
The following definitions apply in this Agreement. "Online Banking" is the Internet-based service providing access to your account(s) under the terms set forth in this Electronic Services Agreement; "Online Account" means any Mutual Savings Association, FSA account from which you will be conducting transactions using a Service; and "Password" is the code sent to you by Mutual Savings Association, FSA for use during the initial sign-on, or the code you select after the initial sign-on, that establishes your connection to the Service. "Time of day" references are to Central Standard Time or Central Daylight Time, as applicable. "We," "us" or "Mutual" refer to Mutual Savings Association, FSA, which offers the Services, and which holds the accounts accessed by the Services.
Access to Services
We will provide online instructions describing how to use the Online Banking Service or Bill Payment Service. You will gain access to your online accounts through the use of your internet-enabled computer using your Access ID, password and the layered authentication process. Layered authentication is an additional layer of security to the Online Banking process that further validates your identity. This process is designed to keep your personal account information protected from fraud and identity theft.
Hours of Operation
The Services are available 24 hours-a-day, seven days-a-week, except during special maintenance periods, which generally are scheduled between
Use of Your Security Password
You agree not to allow anyone to gain access to the services or to let anyone know your password used with the services. You agree to assume responsibility for all transactions up to the limits allowed by applicable law.
If Your Password Has Been Lost or Stolen
If your password has been lost or stolen, call us immediately at 913-682-3491, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Telephoning us is the best way of minimizing your losses. If you believe your password has been lost or stolen and you telephone or write us within four business days after you learn of the loss or theft, you can lose no more than $50.00 if someone uses your password without your permission. If you do NOT telephone or write us within four business days after you learn of the loss or theft of your password, and we can prove we could have stopped someone from using your password without your permission if you had told us, you could lose as much as $500.00.
Banking Transactions with Online Banking
In addition to viewing account information, you may use Online Banking to conduct the following transactions:
Transfer funds among your checking and savings accounts. NOTE: Because regulations require us to limit pre-authorized transfers (including Online Banking transfers), the following limitations apply:
Liquidity Manager Savings Account -- You can make no more than six transfers per statement period by pre-authorized or automatic transfer, or by Telephone or Online Banking, and no more than three of these may be by check, draft or debit card.
Initiate Bill Payments
New services may be introduced for Online Banking from time to time. We 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 that will be made available to you concerning these services.
The Bill Payment Service permits you to use your internet-enabled computer to direct payments from your designated online Bill Pay Account(s) to third parties you wish to pay. If you choose to utilize the Bill Payment Service, you may begin initiating payments immediately following receipt of your Online Banking Access ID and password. Your "Bill Pay Account" is the account for which you are viewing transactions when initiating a Bill Payment. This must be a checking account.
Through the Bill Payment Service, you can pay bills from your Bill Pay Account to:
Business Payees -- any business, merchant, or professional that generates a bill or invoice for products or services provided to you on your behalf and that has an address we can verify.
Individual Payees -- payments made to individuals, family, or friends for non-business purposes.
The "Date" is the date of the scheduled payment for bill payment. You may set up the following types of bill payments:
Single Payments -- a payment to be made to a payee one time.
Recurring Payments -- payments of fixed amounts to a single payee at recurring intervals (e.g., on-demand, monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, annually, weekly, bi-weekly, bi-monthly).
All payments you make will be deducted from the account that you designate as your Bill Pay Account on the payment date you scheduled. Any payments you wish to make through this Service must be payable in U.S. dollars to a payee located in the continental United States. 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/deposits to deposit type accounts, tax payments, or court ordered payments (e.g., alimony or child support payments). Payments for these payees will be your sole responsibility if delayed or improperly processed or credited. Funds must be available in your Bill Pay Account, on the date scheduled for payment. If the payment date scheduled falls on a non-business day (i.e., Sunday or holiday), funds must be available in your Bill Pay Account the following business day (e.g., Monday). After funds are withdrawn from your Bill Pay Account to make a payment, we may make the payment either by transferring funds electronically to the payee or by mailing the payee a check.
If your Bill Pay Account does not have sufficient available funds on the payment date you scheduled, the payment will be canceled and will be attempted 2 more times. We will attempt to notify you by e-mail or U.S. Postal Mail, but we shall have no obligation or liability if the service does not complete a transfer or payment because there are insufficient available funds in your account to process a transaction. In all cases, you are responsible for either making alternate arrangements for the payment or rescheduling the payment through the Bill Payment 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. You must schedule the payment date at least seven (7) business days before any 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 taken by the payee.
You may schedule a payment or transfer up to 6:00 p.m. for it to be considered received on that day. Payments or transfers scheduled after 6:00 p.m. will be considered received the following business day. The time recorded by the Online Banking Services will be considered the official time. You will use the Bill Payment Service to change or cancel a payment. Once a bill payment transaction is in the system, you can make changes up to
We are only responsible for exercising ordinary care in processing and sending payments upon your authorization in accordance with this Agreement. We will not be liable in any way for delays in mail delivery, for changes to the payee's address or account number (unless you have advised us of the change sufficiently in advance), for the failure of any payee to correctly account for or credit the payment in a timely manner, or for any other circumstances beyond the control of Mutual.
Bill Payment Guarantee
We will reimburse you for any late payment fees or penalties you are charged up to a maximum of $50.00 per scheduled payment, as a result of the failure of a Business Payee to receive a payment made through the Bill Payment Service by the bill's actual due date to the extent that Mutual has not refused the transaction if we reasonably believed such refusal is necessary for security reasons, if you meet each of the following conditions:
You must properly schedule the payment to be initiated on a date at least seven (7) business days prior to the bill's actual due date. This means that you must initiate a Single Payment before 6:00 p.m. on a business day at least seven (7) business days prior to the bill's actual due date. For Recurring Payments, this means that you must allow additional time for months in which weekends or holidays reduce the number of business days between the recurring scheduled payment date and the bill's actual due date.
You will continue to receive your regular account statement either monthly or quarterly, depending on the type of account.

There will be a one time setup and implementation fee of $4.95 per individual enrollment (Access ID and Password).
For those clients within the same household who enroll separately but share the same primary checking account, there will be a $1.00 monthly Online Banking fee and if selected, a $4.95 monthly fee for Bill Payment.
