Bill Pay Agreement/Disclosure

This is your Bill Pay agreement with Northern Colorado Credit Union.

You may use Northern Colorado Credit Union's bill paying service, iPAY, to direct Northern Colorado Credit Union to make payments from your designated checking account to the "Payees" you choose in accordance with this agreement. The terms and conditions of this agreement are in addition to the account agreements, disclosures, and other documents in effect from time to time governing your account (The Account Rules). "You" or "Your" means each person who is authorized to use the service. "Payee" means anyone you designate, including Northern Colorado Credit Union, and anyone Northern Colorado Credit Union accepts as a "Payee."

NOTE: Unlimited bills can be paid via Online Bill Pay. If funds are not available in your account to pay bills, there will be a $30.00 insufficient funds fee assessed. Please refer to Bill Pay Disclosures below.

How to Set Up Payees/Payments

  • If you want to add a new payee, select the "Payee" tab located in your Bill Pay application or speak to a service representative;
  • 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;
  • Northern Colorado Credit Union reserves the right to refuse the payee designation for any reason;
  • You may pay any payee within the United States (including U.S. territories and APOs/FPOs/AEOs); and
  • Northern Colorado Credit Union is not responsible for payments that cannot be made due to incomplete, incorrect, or outdated information.

The Bill-Paying Process

Single Payments: A single payment will be processed on the business day you designate as the payment's process date (generally Monday through Friday, except certain holidays), provided the payment is submitted prior to the daily cut-off time on that date. The daily cut-off time, which is controlled by Northern Colorado Credit Union, is currently 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time. 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 date (generally weekends and certain holidays) as the payment's process date, the payment will be processed on the first business day following the designated process 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 process date is calculated for the next payment. If the calculated process date is a non-business date (generally weekends and certain holidays), it is adjusted based upon the following rules:

  • If the recurring payment's "Pay Before" option is selected, the process date for the new occurrence of the payment is adjusted to the first business day prior to the calculated process date.
  • If the recurring payment's "Pay After" option is selected, the process date for the new occurrence of the payment is adjusted to the first business day after the calculated process 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 process date, then the last calendar day of that month is used as the calculated process date.

Single & Recurring Payments

The system will calculate your payment's estimated arrival date. This is only an estimate; please allow ample time for you payments to reach your "payees."

Canceling a Payment

A bill payment may be changed or canceled anytime prior to the cut-off time on the scheduled process date.
